History
This Death Railway was built during the Second World War by prisoners of the Allies and Asian workers which the Japanese Army arranged to serve for the construction of a strategic route through Myanmar. Currently, the end of this route is Ban Tha Sao or Namtok Station. Kanchanaburi Station to the waterfall is about 77 km. “The more railroad sleepers, the more workers - prisoners of war who were forced to build this railway were dead”— this is the story of the Thai-Burma Railway. The distance of 415 km. reflects the brutality and hardship of prisoners of war, which is the reason why this railway is called ”the Death Railway”.
