This tour offers a rare opportunity to experience Korea’s Demilitarized Zone (DMZ), one of the most heavily fortified borders in the world. The DMZ is a strip of land 4km wide and 248km long that divides the two Koreas. Visitors will visit the Joint Security Area (JSA) on the border between South and North Korea. This is the only place in South Korea where you can get close to the country’s northern neighbor. Although this tour is not dangerous, you will be accompanied by South Korean soldiers on the tour for your protection.

Imjingak Park
On the tour, you will visit Imjingak Park. Located in Paju City about 65km northwest of Seoul, the park is a popular place with local residents and is the only place at the DMZ where you can walk freely without your passport (or ID card). Opposite Imjingak Park, on the North Korean side of the border is Mangbaedan, an alter where North Koreans visit on New Year's Day and Chuseok and perform ancestral rites by bowing toward their hometown. Outside Imjingak, there are 12 kinds of tanks on display that were used during the Korean War.
 
Freedom Bridge
The Freedom Bridge is located behind Imjingak Square and was built for both Koreas to repatriate their respective prisoners in 1953, when the South and the North signed the Armistice Agreement. Since more than 12,000 prisoners of war crossed this bridge and regained their freedom, the bridge was named the Freedom Bridge in commemoration.
The 3rd Infiltration Tunnel
You will visit the third infiltration tunnel built by North Korea that extends into South Korean territory deep underground. It was discovered by the South Korean Army in October 1978. Since then, it has been developed as an attraction for tourists to learn about the importance of South Korea’s national security and of the history with the North. Visitors can only visit the tunnel if they have their passport (or ID card) with them.
Dora Observatory
The Dora Observatory is the northernmost observatory in South Korea from which visitors can look into North Korea through a telescope. Depending on the weather, visitors can see the North Korean propaganda village in the DMZ and as far north as the city of Gaeseong, including a statue of Kim Il-Seong, Gijeong-dong on the outskirts of Gaeseong city, a train smokestack at Jangdan Station, Geumamgol (a collective farm) and Mt. Songaksan. It has been open to the public since January 1987.
Dorasan Station
Dorasan Station, the northernmost station in South Korea, was built in anticipation that the day will come when the two Koreas will be united again. It was planned to connect with the Gyongueisun line and would link the peninsula to the European continent via the Siberian Railway.
Panmunjom
Panmunjom is a village on the border straddling North and South Korea, where the 1953 Korean Armistice Agreement was signed. The building where the armistice was signed still stands, though it is on the northern side of the Military Demarcation Line, which runs through the middle of the DMZ. When an important meeting is being held, this area is crowded by guards and newsmen. After the famous “tree chopping incident,” when North Korean soldiers killed two United States army officers on August 18, 1976, it was agreed to separate the sentries and spilt the village in half.
