Details of Ho-Chin-Trail:
  • Symbolizes how the Vietnamese used their limited resources to great advantage against US.
  • The trail, an immense network of footpaths and roads, was used to transport men and materials from the north to the south.
  • The Ho Chin Minh trail was a large network of footpaths and roads and was used to transport men, women and materials.
  • Most of the trail was outside Vietnam in neighbouring Laos and Cambodia and was used as a route to supply goods to Vietnam. Goods were carried on the trail not only in trucks but also by porters who carried about 25 kg of weight on their backs.
  • This trail line proved very crucial during Vietnam’s war with America. The US regularly bombed this supply line by intensive bombing, but it was rebuilt quickly.
