Early this month we visited the tunnel under Fort Bonifacio in Manila, this was dug by the Americans before World War II. This is reported to be 2km long, almost a mile and a quarter. These folks made the trip…. This is one of several entrances..



This is a plan of the tunnel; it is approximately 2km long with many laterals. If this drawing belongs to anyone please let me know so I can give you credit.


The tunnel appears to be maybe 100 feet below the surface.



At the foot of the stairs you can go left or right, “IN CASE OF BROWNOUT DON’T PANIC”


Lots of the tunnel is lined with concrete walls. We are walking off to the left of the stairs


Also lots of side rooms



This room has a large hole in it, maybe a well or some say an elevator shaft



This end of the tunnel has what appears to me as raw sewage in it, probably not good to walk in.


Orange pipe in center I believe is sewage pipe. This is also another entrance to the tunnel.



Walking back towards the stairs



Some areas have a partial ceiling.





Now we are walking to the right of the stairs, the walls are unfinished in this direction. The water is crystal clear here.


Lots of side laterals





Another entrance set of steps; this goes up and to the left, then exits

Morning Glory entrance inside



Somewhat muddy, but not sewage, that’s a plus……………..

Morning Glory entrance


And another fine day underground
