At present, about 600-meter-long tunnel has been renovated. The five-storey cannon tower where the militia watched and combated has also been repaired. Inside the tunnel, you can find individual blindages, planks, meeting rooms, headquarters, gunshot holes, warehouses etc. However, the most unexpected and masterly design is the entrance of the tunnel. The kangs, kitchen ranges, hogpens, donkey slots, wardrobes and some other places all were the entrance leading to the tunnel designed by the smart Chinese people.
