Cu Chi tunnels are an immense network of connecting underground tunnels. They are part of a much larger network of tunnels of around 200Km long that is well known nationwide and worldwide. The upper soil layer is between 3 to 5m thick and can support the weight of a 60-ton tank and the damage of light cannons and bombs. The underground network provided meeting rooms, sleeping quarters, commanding rooms, hospitals, and other social rooms. You can find down why Vietnam- a tiny country could defeat its enemy, the large and richest country in the world.

The tunnel systems were of great importance to the Viet Cong in their resistance to American forces, and helped achieve ultimate military success.
