So that , the whole tunnel system is over 200 km in length with three different layers.

* The first layer is over 4 m in depth , second layer is over 8 m in depth and the third layer is over 12 m in depth .

* Especially , each layer got some different bunkers with different functions , such as :

*The victory of Cu Chi Tunnel was not only One of the great victory of

Vietnamese people in history of Viet Nam War but also One of the great

victory of man kind in a big battle to fight against One of the most

strongest and powerful Army Empire in the world .
