Stop first in Imjingak, a park located in the banks of Imjin River where you’ll see artillery and war artefacts that were used during the Korean conflict.

Re-board the coach and head to the 3rd Infiltration Tunnel, located beneath the border of North Korea and South Korea. Here, learn about the role of these tunnels, which are believed to have been planned as a military invasion route by North Korea. See where the South Koreans have blocked the actual Military Demarcation Line with concrete barricades.
