Visit the Demilitarized Zone and other places significant to the events of the Korean War. Understand the history of divided Korea and see the recovery of a nation and the tributes to the families affected by the war's devastation.
Travel by the Freedom Road or Jayuro to Imjingak, the northernmost point bordering North Korea. See the barbed wire fences, military guards, serene rice paddies and the North Korean propaganda village along the way.
See all the Korean War monuments at Imjinak park like the Mangbaedan Memorial Ritual Altar, Freedom Bridge, an old engine from a locomotive that was derailed by bombs during the war, and the Peace Stones collected from battlefields from 64 different countries.
Afterward, board a bus to the Korean Demilitarized Zone (DMZ), passing through checkpoints, military camps and mine fields. This high tension area has strict security measures, passports need to be cleared and photo opportunities will be limited.
Watch a quick video at the DMZ Exhibition Hall before heading to the Third Tunnel, one of the four infiltration tunnels dug by the North that has been discovered by the South. A seven-minute tram ride or approximately 10-minute walk leads you down into the lower platform. After ducking or crouching for about 265 meters, you will reach one of the cement barricades near the Military Demarcation Line that will prevent you from going any further north.
Next stop will be the Dora Observatory where we can view the whole expanse of the Demilitarized Zone, the North Korean propaganda village Gijeong-dong and South Korea's northernmost village Daeseong-dong where the armistice ending the Korean War was signed. Each village hangs their government's flag upon some of the tallest flagpoles in the world - what some have come to call the "flagpole war."
The final stop will be the Dorasan station, the northernmost functioning railway station. A milepost "Seoul 56km/Pyeongyang 205km" still stands from the time when trains could still cross past this station and into North Korea.
