    Itinerary

    Begin this exciting tour with a convenient hotel pick up and head to your first destination of the day - Imjingak Park, located 7 km away from the Military Demarcation Line. Built in 1972 with the hope of a possible future unification of North and South Korea, the three-storied Imjingak is surrounded by several monuments, Unification Park and North Korea Centre and holds several sculpted artworks exhibits related to the Korean War tragedy.

    See the Freedom Bridge that was once crossed over by South Koreans when they came back home from North Korea. Next, pass by the Unification Village and check out the DMZ Theater and Exhibition Hall. As you travel through the DMZ area, listen to your guide’s relics on Korea’s turbulent past. Also, learn how the Korean Armistice Agreements led to the creation of a 155-mile long military demarcation line (MLD) with this 2-km wide demilitarized zone on each side of it.

    Go further to visit the 3rd Infiltration Tunnel that was secretly dug by the Northern army to spy on the Republic of Korea. Your next stop is the Dorasan Observatory, located on the top of Mt. Dora. Being the closest accessible spot to North Korea, visitors can catch glimpses of the North Korean State through binoculars from the 500-person capacity observatory. This is followed by a visit to Dorastan Station, one of the northernmost railway stations on the Gyeongui Line, connecting Seoul to Sinuiju. Situated in the zone that strictly restricts general civilian access, visitors can view Dorasan Mountain and the barbed wire fences of the Southern Limit Line.

    Return to Seoul with a drop off at the Myeongdong area. Complete this tour with a relaxing lunch of Bibimbap, a traditional Korean dish in Myeongdong.
