DMZ is very popular tourist destination for foreign tourists visiting Korea for its uniqueness and, as such, we are happy to invite you to our more intriguing, comfortable and DMZ-expert guided Very Small Group DMZ Tour Program, which goes as far as DMZ 3rd Tunnel.
In the morning, grab your passport and get in a comfortable vehicle that takes you to Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) that has divided North and South Korea since the Korean War. Visit the site, where N Korean spy commandos were first fought with Korean and US combined Special Forces. This site is just 1 km away from the Blue House, S Korean Presidential residence.
En route, your expert guide offers you stories and explanations about this unprecedented assassination attempt and continuing conflicts and tensions between two Koreas. After a stop at Imjingak Peace Park to hand on war artifacts, artillery, military bunker and first battle field and then head to S Korean artillery base for a glimpse of the wartime weapons.
Next, you go inside the DMZ S Korean military camp, where 31 North Korean spy commandos destroyed and infiltrated the fortified border fence in 1968. Then, confront DMZ field itself unfolding in front of you and then walk up along DMZ barbed wire fence line together with S Korean DMZ soldiers as if you are also patrolling DMZ. You smell and touch the real DMZ just a step away. From here, you watch N Korean DMZ military post a mile away. Entry is on the invitation basis and we are pleased to invite you here on behalf of S Korean government.
Then you will be invited to a border-neighbored restaurant, which cooks and serves well a North Korean–style lunch of barbecued duck (vegetarian meals to be arranged upon request).
After lunch, you visit 3rd Infiltration Tunnel to experience the evidence of N Korea’s unrealized ambition to invade S Korea in 1978. It was designed and dug to invade S Korea stealthily underground. This steep tunnel is 1635 m long and 2 m wide and designed to move about 30,000 soldiers an hour to S Korea. Also stop at Dora Observatory to catch a glimpse of N Korean propaganda village and see as far as Kaesong city in N Korean territory.
On the way back, you go up to Odusan observation point, where you see a N Korean village just across the river border, while your guide explains the state of N Korean farmers’ life.
