    ... reason Hellfire Pass has it's name is due to the flickering bonfire light that illuminated the emaciated workers while they worked on Konyu Cutting. The 'speedo' as this period was called, combined with the cholera outbreak and wet season resulted in the death of thousands. The beatings, combined with starvation and lack of medical facilities and treatment resulted in further death. Overall 12,399 POW's and between 70,000 to 90,000 Asian labourers died. The museum was built, ...

We waited around for 15 minutes and finally the farmer arrived and we were able to get in to get the trees and get back to see the elephants.
