Visiting the (in)famous Hell Fire Pass in Kanchanaburi


While in Kanchanaburi we did visit the (in)famous Hell Fire Pass & Museum. The Hell Fire Pass thanks his name to the hell that the POW's endured during WorldWar 2 building the Death Railway from Bangkok to Burma (Myanmar). You can walk a 800m trail to the place where POW's by hand cleared a small rocky mountain for the railway. At the beginning of the trail is a museum to explain the hardship of the POW's and how life was in those days. This is about 70km west of Kanchanaburi city. The photo is showing the Hell Fire Pass where the railroad used to be.
