highlights

  • Have a surreal experience at the Demilitarized Zone, a heavily guarded borderline scarring the Korean peninsula with its separation into North and South Korea.

  • Visit the Imjingak Park built as a tribute to those who suffered the brunt of the Korean War and the Freedom Bridge where many hostages and prisoners were exchanged.

  • Peep through binoculars into North Korea at the Dorasan Observatory and visit South Korea’s symbolic yet barely used getaway station to the North - the Dorasan Train Station.

  • Walk through the Third Infiltration Tunnel built by the North Koreans in an attempt to launch a surprise attack on South Korea in the 1970s.

DMZ

At the end of the Korean War in 1953, an armistice was signed by North and South Korea which resulted in the Demilitarized Zone, a 4 km-wide, 240 km-long border that has since scarred the Korean peninsula, dividing the North and South into two independent countries. Lined on both sides with tank traps, landmines, barbed wires on high fences and various other obstacles, it is the heaviest guarded border in the world. Visiting this place can have an unsettling effect, especially when it’s weighed heavy with symbolism.

Your guided tour will begin at Imjingak Park situated 7 km from the Demarcation Line. The Park features monumental relics and sorrows from the Korean War and is dedicated to the 10 million Koreans who were separated from their friends and families. Also here is the Freedom Bridge connecting North to South where several South Koreans marched into their mother country from the North after the signing of the armistice. Pass by the Unification Village and enter the DMZ Theatre and Exhibition Hall where you can watch videos explaining the various tunnels that run below the DMZ and general history of the war and division of Korea.

An interesting aspect of DMZ will be your tour of the Third Infiltration Tunnel which was dug by the North Koreans in their attempt to infiltrate South Korea and launch a surprise attack. Walking along the 265m stretch of this 73m-deep tunnel, you’d be surprised by how often your head bumps the low-lying roof.

After the tunnel, you will head to the Dorasan Observatory. This is the part of South Korea that is the closest to the North. From here, one can peer into binoculars to catch a rare glimpse of North Korea in all its reclusiveness. Nearby is the Dorasan Station which is a symbol of hope for the reunification of Korea. Built in 2002, this modern station is ready and waiting to run on the day the two Koreas finally settle their differences and come together as one.

Important Information

  • NOTE:

  • The DMZ area has been closed due to unfortunate outbreaks of African Swine Fever in the vicinity. Therefore, we will not be able to enter the area, including the 3rd tunnel, Dora Observatory, and Dorasan Station. There is no information as yet on when they will be opening again. So, in the meantime, we will conduct the tour in the alternative itinerary:

    • Depart from Seoul→Ganghwa Peace Observatory → 6.25 Veterans Memorial Park → Imjingak → Art Space BEAT 131 → Drop-off at City Hall or Myeongdong (around 2:30 PM)
  • All tourists must bring their passport along on the day of the tour as it will be required for ID check while at the DMZ.

  • Strict Dress Code: No ripped pants, shorts, skirts, or camouflage.

  • No restrictions as such are placed on any one country and there is no age limit for the DMZ tour. It is open to all tourists.

  • All schedules are subject to change according to traffic or weather conditions and unforeseen circumstances regarding the military such as military training. Because the DMZ is operated by the military, the trip can get cancelled without prior notice.

  • In case the DMZ is closed without pre-notice due to inclement weather, military reasons, etc., an alternative itinerary will be followed. You will visit instead: Imjingak — Art Space BEAT 131— Odusan Unification Observatory — War Memorial of Korea — Drop-off at City Hall or Myeongdong

  • DMZ is not the kind of place a traveler can just wander off. Tourists must stay with their guide and military escorts at all times.

  • No waving, pointing, signaling, or photography without permission while at the DMZ.
