Hope BC - (03/05) www.hopebc.com : Othello Tunnels
Hope BC is the Gold Gem of British Columbia Canada attracting busloads of visitors every year. If you are really interested in coming for a visit or living here, you have come to the right place.

This video shows you the "Othello Tunnels" - a must see. Othello Quintette Tunnels are a series of tunnels blasted through the canyon walls along the Coquihalla River by engineers building the Kettle Valley Railroad from 1911 to 1918. The railroad ran until 1959. The tracks have been pulled up and the tunnels opened as a short hike for visitors. Flashlights are helpful if you suffer from claustrophobia or fear of darkness. Picnic tables edge the river. Views of the canyon and the river waters are awesome. Drive through Hope along Kawkawa Lake Road to Othello Road. Or take the Kawkawa Lake exit from highway-5.
