    DMZ Tour: Introduction
    DMZ is a buffer zone between two Koreas, bisecting the Korean Peninsula
    DMZ has been the most popular tourist spot of Korea for foreigners since the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989. The purpose of the zone is to prevent the recurrence of war between North & South Koreas.
    The zone ranges 2 km north and south respectively from the ceasefire line of 1953. The land stretches across the Korean Peninsula 155 miles from the mouth of Han River to the East Coast.
    It’s one of the most well-preserved wild-life refuges where peace and tension coexist. The President of Korea, Park Geun-hye, is pushing to build a “peace park” in the DMZ as a new symbol of political reconciliation and ecological conservation.

    DMZ Tour: Historical Backgrounds
    The surrender of Japan in 1945 at the end of Pacific War saw the division of Korea by the 38th parallel line when the US and the Soviet Union moved into Korean Peninsula. The division line was intended to be a temporary political border, but the failure to hold free election throughout the peninsula in 1948 deepened the division between the two sides.
    The North Korean tanks crossed the 38th line at the dawn of June 25, 1950. The war lasted for three years and one month to cost more than two million people's lives. The ceasefire agreement was signed at Panmunjom on July 27, 1953. The armistice, not a peace treaty, is still in effect today.

    DMZ Tour: Major Tour Spots
    In essence, any DMZ tour is to experience the reality of division and to find the hope of future. The highlight of the tour is to explore a tunnel dug by North Korea. The tunnel was discovered by South Army as the third one among four tunnels, hence the name “The Third Tunnel”. It is a surreal experience to find a 1,635 meter tunnel at the depth of 73 meters underground. The infiltration tunnel was made by dangerous manual excavation work with dynamites, shovels and pick axes. The tunnel is located only four kilometers away from JSA, where the representatives of North Korea repeat their version of peace and reunification.
    The other tourism spots include an observatory and a train station. The observatory sits on the top of a hill, from which you can observe the north area including the “Gaesung Industrial Complex”, the “Propaganda Village”, a huge statue of North Leader Kim Il-sung, etc. The train station is the northern most one of South Korea and it is physically connected to the North railway system, which again is linked to the Trans Eurasian Railway Network. Regardless of the frustrating diplomacy surrounding the Korean Peninsula, here you can find a hope to go to Europe by TRS (Trans-Siberian Railway).

    DMZ


    DMZ is an area occupying two kilometers out from the border of both Koreas, stretching a total of 64 million Pyeong(or around 50,156 ac). Along this DMZ bisecting the two Koreas stand almost 2 million armed soldiers from both sides. In DMZ, you can see historical sites breaking the heart of so many Koreans.

    It’s a quiet and calm place well preserving ecology because no one has been allowed to enter it for the past 4 decades. It’s also well-known for being home to precious wildlife and wild nature. Seen from the distance, DMZ looks scary, but once you get to know it more, you actually find it one of the safest security ecology tourist attractions.

    Do not put off an interesting trip to the world-unique demilitarized zone.

    DMZ Tour Course
     

    Imjingak bridge Imjingak

     

    [Imjingak(observatory)]


    It’s a place steaming with Koreans’ sorrow over the 6.25 Korean Civil War. 
    It’s a security-reunification tourist attraction with its Mangbaedan(alter) for the displaced whose ometowns are in North Korea, Freedom Bridge as a representative legacy of the War, Bell of Peace and so forth. Especially, Mangbaedan is famous as a place the displaced perform an ancestral rite on the occasions of Lunar New Year and Chooseok(Korean Thanksgiving Day). After the truce, South Korean soldiers captivated during the War, when they went down south, used Freedom Bridge, whose southern end are hanging hundreds of thousand ribbons of peace, creating a spectacle. 

     

    TongildaegyoTongildaegyo soilder

     

    [Tongildaegyo(Unification Bridge]


    Its northern part is a civilian control area and the first door to DMZ. Everyone, male or female, Korean or foreigner, should gain a license to cross the bridge. If one is a foreigner, he/she has to present passport and if Korean, ID before traversing the bridge. This bridge is also renowned because Jeong, Juyeong, founder of Hyundai Group crossed it with a herd of 500 cows in 1998 on a visit to the North.

     

    DMZ ShowroomDMZ Showroom

     

    [DMZ showroom, video room]


    It’s a unique museum within the civilian control line. The museum, on which the nation and provinces had spent 44.5 billion Korean won, officially opened on 08, 14, 2009. DMZ Showroom displays leaflets used during the 6.25 Korean Civil War, military letters, bayonets, empty cartridges, pottery found in DMZ, taxidermied birds and etc. DMZ Video Room features three-dimensional moving pictures. By watching them, you can easily understand how Korea got divided.  

     

    Uderground TunnelUderground Tunnel


    [The 3rd Underground Tunnel]


    The Third Unground Tunnel dug out by the North could send 30,000 soldiers per hour to invade the South. It’s wide enough for even tanks to pass through. It has elevators and you can go down either by train or on foot. When you do down on foot, you have to wear anti-slip shoes since it’s dotted with slippery areas. In the tunnel, you can go as close as 200 meters to the Military Demarcation Line (MDL). You will get thrilled.

     

     

    Dorasan ObservatoryDorasan Observatory view

     

    [Dorasan Observatory]


    It’s where you have the best view of the North since it’s located on the southern border of DMZ, that is, on the northernmost part of South Korea. Here, you can see with the naked eye, the barbed wire fence put along the MDL, and on a clear day, you can see the Gaesung Industrial Park of the North and even North Korean villages. Seeing the North looking close yet too far to reach, again you get aware of the divided Korean Peninsula.

     

     

    Dorasan Train Station lobyDorasan Train Station

     

    [Dorasan Train Station]

    It’s not the last station of the South, but the first station to the North. Should Korea be re-united, it would be the starting and arriving point of transcontinental railway traveling through the Eurasian Continent. The train doesn’t run for now. It gained international attention in 2002, when Kim, Daejung, president of Korea and George Bush, president of America visited it. Thenceforth, it began to emerge as a fresh tourist attraction even in the eyes of foreign reporters.

     

     

     


     


    [Tongilmaeul(Reunification Village)]


    The village in DMZ as an eco-friendly village with its nature-given setting and rich farming land is the only place in the world, access to which is controlled by the military. Especially, cold soybean grown in its fertile land rich in protein and calcium is known as nutritious choice food.
    It has gained so much popularity as the village’s indigenous product that it is the most favorite souvenir of those visiting the village.
     
     
     
     
     
    DMZ tour package is made up of courses well showing the sad history of Korean
    division. Let’s set out on a trip to heart-breaking historical places hidden in the dark side of brilliant, advanced Korea.
     
    You can move individually up to Imjingang Station, but since only designated buses can cross the Tongildaegyo(bridge), you have to hop in one of them.
    The Cosmojin Tour starting from Seoul led by English-speaking guides is the most efficient.
