อุโมงค์ปิยะมิตร (Xumongkh̒ piya mitr, Piyamit Tunnel) is a bunker of the Malysian Communists during the 1970s. It was once the base of Malaya Communist Division 2. With a length of a kilometer and nine entrances, it was built in only three months. It was used as a shelter from bombs and to store food supplies.
