DMZ - VINH MOC TUNNELS TOUR

 

Deep beneath the dark earth, hidden from screeching American Rolling Thunder bombing, the fishmen of the fishing village of Vinh Moc, located just above the DMZ lived for years in an underground refuge of Vinh Moc tunnels. They survived, and even prospered in their makeshift underground community. Over the years 17 children were born in the tunnels. They had no choice; dig or die. This is an amazing example of the human will.
This half day tour covers the two significant historical sites in the DMZ area; the Freedom bridge over Ben Hai river at the 17th parallel and Vinh Moc tunnels. This tour can be started either from Hue or from Dong Ha. If you are heading south from Phong Nha to Hue, we would pick you up from there and drop you off in Hue.

We pick you up from your hotel in Hue or Dong Ha at 9.00am and head north to the former DMZ. Stop at Quang Tri town to visit the ruin of Quang Tri citadel which was amost destroyed in the Easter Offensive battle in 1972. Then, we have a brief stop at Gio linh ( A2 ) fire support base, located right below the southern edge of the DMZ, once an important part of the anti-infiltration Mc Namara Line before driving into the former DMZ, the old de-facto border between North and South Vietnam for 18 years.  We will take a walk on the Freedom bridge across the Ben Hai river - the river that was the only true physical demarcation line between the two Vietnams. The last stop of the day is Vinh Moc tunnels - the refuge of some 300 north Vietnamese refugees during Rolling Thunder bombing operation. Then, head back to Hue. End of the trip.
