Explore the border of South and North Korea where the Demilitarised Zone separates the 2 countries. Wander through Imjingak and up to the Dora Observatory for a glimpse of North Korea before a stop at the Joint Security Area.
Board a comfortable coach and journey to the edge of South Korea and see the border monitored closely by North and South Korea as well as the United Nations. As you ride along the Third Tunnel, pay attention to the 5,364-foot (1,635 m) passage that runs between the 2 countries, and follow your guide to Imjingak, a park with space for 5 million people that was built to console those who lost their homes in the war.
Then, spot the Bridge of Freedom as well as traces of its former railroad function, and get a rare glimpse of the mysterious nation of North Korea from Dora Observatory before you arrive at Dorasan Station. Conclude your tour with a view of Joint Security Area (JSA) square, the only part of the DMZ where North and South Korean forces stand face to face.
