Visiting Dien Bien Phu Campaign Headquarters in Muong Phang

The headquarters of Dien Bien Phu campaign in Muong Phang Commune, Dien Bien Phu City is a historic place associated with the Dien Bien Phu Victory which “resounded throughout the five continents and was world-shaking”. 

Along with the Dien Bien Phu Victory Historical Relics, the Dien Bien Phu Campaign Headquarters Relic Site and the supporting tourist destination are always "red addresses" attracting tourists when they set foot on the northwestern province of Dien Bien.

Visiting Dien Bien Phu Campaign Headquarters in Muong Phang
The headquarters of the Dien Bien Phu campaign were hidden in the old forest at the foot of Pu Don Mountain in Muong Phang Commune, nearly 40 km from Dien Bien Phu City. This is where General Vo Nguyen Giap and the members of the Command Committee of the Dien Bien Phu campaign were often stationed to work and rest.

With the tunnels and shacks layed out in a continuous system, hidden in the old forest at the foot of Pu Don Mountain, for the 105 days from January 31, 1954, to May 15, 1954, the absolute safety of the important headquarters of the Dien Bien Phu campaign was ensured.

The road to the headquarters of the Dien Bien Phu campaign has been upgraded with a concrete road running more than 1 km through the forest of Muong Phang to help visitors recall old memories.

From the headquarters, going up to the highest point, visitors can observe the entire Dien Bien Phu City, Muong Thanh Valley and former French bases such as Him Lam Hill, A1, C1, C2, D1 Hills, and Independent Hill.

The shack where General Vo Nguyen Giap, the Commander-in-Chief of the Vietnam People's Army and the Commander-in-Chief of the Dien Bien Phu Campaign, lived and worked.

Between General Vo Nguyen Giap's shack and the shacks of Chief of the General Staff Hoang Van Thai and of the Chinese military consultants Wei Quojing is a 69-metre-long tunnel.

 



The tunnel is 1.70 metres high and 1 to 3 metres wide. In the middle of the tunnel, there is a conference room measuring 18 square meters and 5 locations for communication machines.

Hall house was the venue for the daily meetings of the Command Committee of the Dien Bien Phu campaign. Everything is still intact, retaining the mark of history.

Visitors enjoy Hoang Cam stove, a type of smoke-free stove that ensured the safety of the base.

In addition, Muong Phang also attracts tourists with the production activities of the Thai ethnic group.
