Explore a section of the subterranean system where the Viet Cong set up a base as a hideout from their enemies during the war. Following your guide’s instructions, journey through some of the zones of the tunnels to investigate the underground kitchens, bedrooms, field hospitals, storage facilities, weapons factories, and command centers.  Crawl through the dark and tight spaces to experience what life was like first hand.
