The section between Tham Kra Sae and Wampo/Wang Po is called the wooden Wampo viaduct. It was built along the edge of the Kwai Noi River and clings to the mountainside. A ledge was carved out of the cliff face to form a base for the construction. The 164 bridge trestles along the "Burma Death Railway" were originally built of bamboo but the Government of Thailand has replaced them all with wood. Nonetheless, there were signs asking you "to take care" because quite a few (if not all) of the boards were loose, broken and had big holes in them. Made me nervous. This dangerous and exhausting section for the POW work force was considered "lucky" because only 4,000 men died. Historians say that every spike in the "Death Railway" represents 5-7 workers that died.
Thank you dear all for your kind words.
Sincere greetings from Taiwan.
