BangKengKou" mostly refers to the tunnel on Jiufen Mountain, which was just wide enough for two rail cars to pass each other at that time, but now can only accommodate one van in single file. The rock surfaces are hard and water from mountain springs often drips down between the cracks. This is especially apparent after heavy rain. >Although BangKengKou is merely a tunnel, it has become a timeless symbol of the journey to Jiufen.
