Hellfire Pass Kanchanaburi
Kanchanaburi’s Hellfire Pass is a site of great historical significance. Visitors can learn about the tragedy that took place there and see first-hand the memorials that have been erected in honor of those who lost their lives.
The pass is located in the mountains of Thailand and was used as a route for the Burma-Siam Railway during World War II. Construction of the railway was forced labor, and many prisoners died due to the conditions.
Today, the pass is a memorial to those who died during the construction of the Burma-Siam Railway. Visitors can explore the site and learn about its history. There are also several hiking trails in the area, so you can enjoy the beautiful scenery while getting some exercise.
