The first section of the walk down to Konyu Cutting (Hellfire Pass) is only 485 metres from the centre. This is the stretch that most people do. There is a series of wooden steps going down and then it’s relatively flat. #DeathRailway #Thailand
 The most moving time to visit Hellfire Pass is during the Dawn Service on ANZAC Day. You have to come down here before 4:00am and your way is lit by oil lanterns. The flickering lights give you an idea of why the prisoners called it Hellfire Pass. #DeathRaikway #Thailand
 The steam locomotives needed a relatively flat terrain to run which is why embankments, cuttings and bridges had to be built. Unfortunately the wooden trestle bridges no longer exist and so the walking trail beyond Hellfire Pass includes some steep descents and climbs.
 The long walk from Hellfire Pass is 2.6km to the far end. It took me about 90 minutes which included the briefing at the centre where they give you a walkie talkie and tell you about the route. Coming back took only an hour. #Thailand
 This is Hin Tok Cutting. The end of the trail is just beyond this. There are toilets there if you need them. There is also a road here and so if you came with a guide he could pick you up here. Otherwise you need to walk back. #Thailand
 On the other side of the road you can see the path of the railway continuing. But this is private property and you cannot walk this section. The line went all the way to Burma but there’s no evidence left of it any more.
If you are able to do this walk I highly recommend it.
