Ho Chi Minh Trail

The Ho Chi Minh Trail was a route for the movement of troops and the supply of North Vietnamese and Viet Cong forces operating in South Vietnam during the Vietnam War. The trail stretched 1,000 kilometers, just over 600 miles, and was actually a series of developed roads and footpaths. The route of the Ho Chi Minh Trail ran primarily through neighboring Laos and Cambodia along the border with North and South Vietnam. It was the target of American bombing and interdiction throughout the Vietnam War.
