The DMZ area is the closest district to the North Korea. This 6-hour tour (including transfers) is primarily held in the 3rd tunnel, which you will have the opportunity to enter by foot. If you are interested in learning about the war history between North and South Korea, this tour is for you. Depending on the weather, you might be able to see North Korea through a telescope at the Dora observatory.

Your tour starts with pickup from your hotel in downtown Seoul. During the drive, you will pass by Imjingak Pyeonghoa-Nuri Park, located about 4 miles (7 km) from the Demarcation Line.

Playing the role as the forefront of tourism related to the Korean conflict, the park was built in 1972 with the hope that someday unification would be possible. Mangbaedan, which stands opposite of Imjingak, is a place where people from North Korea can visit and perform ancestral rites by bowing toward their home country every New Year's Day and Chuseok. The Bridge of the Freedom, which South Koreans crossed when they came back home from North Korea, stands behind Mangbaedan. In front of Imjingak is the Gyeongui Train Line, which was destroyed during the Korean War in 1950. It has been under construction since 2000. Every year many events for unification are held at Imjingak. You'll also pass by the Unification Village.

Then arrive at the DMZ Theater and Exhibition Hall. Enter the 3rd Infiltration Tunnel, which was discovered in 1978 by Korean forces. It spans more than 1 mile (1.6 km) in length, 6.5 feet (2 meters) in width, and 6.5 feet (2 meters) in height and is located 32 miles (52 km) from Seoul. It is estimated that approximately 30,000 soldiers could move through the tunnel per hour. Once the tunnel was found, North Koreans insisted it was intentionally made by South Koreans to invade North Korea, but their insistence was proven untrue as the explosions used to make the tunnel face southward.

Next, stop at Dora Observatory, located on the South Korean side of the 38th parallel (another name for the DMZ). Situated on top of Dorasan (Mt. Dora), the observatory looks across the Demilitarized Zone. It is the part of South Korea closest to North Korea, and you can catch a rare glimpse of the country through binoculars from the 500-person-capacity observatory. You'll get a look at the North Korean propaganda village situated in the DMZ, a remnant of the old prosperity of the North, and see as far as the city of Kaesong. The observatory is very close to the 3rd Tunnel. Dorasan Station, also nearby, is designed to be the station that connects the railroads of the South and North one day in the future.

Finally, tour ends  with drop-off in Seoul at either the City Hall Subway Station or Myeongdong Lotte Hotel.

Imjingak Park
Imjingak, located 7 km from the Military Demarcation Line, is now at the forefront of tourism related to the Korean Conflict. It was built in 1972 with the hope that someday unification would be possible. Mangbaedan, which stands opposite of Imjingak, is famous for the place where people from North Korea visit and perform ancestral rites by bowing toward their hometown every New Years Day and Chuseok. The Bridge of the Freedom, South Koreans crossed when they came back to their mother country from North Korea, stands behind Mangbaedan.

In front of Imjingak is the Gyeongui Train Line which was destroyed during the Korean Conflict in 1950. It has been under construction since 2000. Every year many events for unification are held at Imjingak.

The 3rd Tunnel
The 3rd Tunnel was discovered in 1978 by Korean forces. It spans over 1635m in length, 2m in width, and 2m in height and is located 52km from Seoul. It is estimated that approximately 30,000 soldiers could move through the tunnel per hour. Once the tunnel was found, North Koreans insisted it was intentionally made by us to invade North Korea, but, their insistence was proven untrue as the explosions used to make the tunnel face southward.

Dora Observatory
Dora Observatory is on the South Korean side of the 38th parallel. Situated on top of Dorasan (Mount Dora), the observatory looks across the Demilitarized Zone. It is the part of South Korea closest to the North. Visitors can catch a rare glimpse of the reclusive North Korean state through binoculars from the 304 square feet, 500-person capacity observatory. They will be able to see the North Korean propaganda village situated in the DMZ, a remnant of the old prosperity of the North, and can see as far as the city of Kaesong. The observatory is very close to the Third Tunnel (Third North Korean Infiltration Tunnel), a massive North Korean-dug tunnel which was planned as a pathway for invasion to the South if war had erupted and it had not been discovered. The Dorasan Station, also nearby, is designed to be the station that connects the railroads of the South and North one day in the future.
