Hellfire Pass Walking Trail reopens

The Department of Veterans’ Affairs is pleased to advise that the entire Hellfire Pass Walking Trail (including pedestrian access through the iconic Konyu Cutting) has been reopened to the public. 

18 November 2020

The Hellfire Pass Interpretive Centre was not affected by the partial Walking Trail closure and continues to remain open to the public.

In the interests of public safety, further partial and/or temporary closures of the Hellfire Pass Walking Trail may be required when there are periods of heavy and sustained rainfall in the area such as during the Thai wet season (normally between May and November). We will notify the public of any future closures at the earliest time possible to minimise any inconvenience.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, we have increased cleaning and disinfection of the site to ensure the health and safety of our visitors. We have also introduced new measures, which all visitors are asked to follow during their visit. This includes visitor number restrictions for the Centre. 

If you have any questions about visiting the site or are planning on coming as part of a large group, we encourage you to first contact staff by either calling: +66 (0) 34 919 605 or emailing info [at] hellfirepass.in.th

We understand that due to current restrictions, many people are still unable to visit the Centre and Walking Trail. We encourage you to download our Anzac360 app from the App Store or Google Play to learn more about the history of the area through virtual reality technology.
