Official description

Excavated by Malay communists in 1976 to avoid bombardment, this network of tunnels stretches for over a kilometre and is in a lush jungle setting. It is about 5-6 feet wide and there are nine entrance-exit paths.
The tunnel complex includes bedrooms, storerooms and a well like structure that was used to ferry goods to the surface. There is also a very interesting museum on site tracing the struggle the communists fought and ultimately lost. Entrance fee is around 50 baht.
