The Hellfire Pass is a 500-meter-long portion of rock that 1,000 prisoners of war dugout (by hand) to pave the way for the Death Railway. Seven hundred of those men died during the 12-week digging period. Today, it’s possible to walk the old railway track into the jungle (which takes about four to five hours) and visit a memorial museum honouring those who died. Established by the Australian government to honour Allied POWS, the museum tells the poignant stories of these men through artefacts, tools, photos, and multimedia displays. The audio headsets are highly recommended.
