I went with a tour to visit the DMZ third tunnel. The tour was worth the price because we saw a lot of places. First it was the bridge and we took photos with the railway miniature train. Then we went into the third tunnel...More

This was another stop of our DMZ full day tour. First, you take a small open air tram ride down deep into a tunnel. Better wear the hard hat that is provided because a few people hit their head on the walls. Then you get...More

This particular tunnel was only discovered due to a defector from the North helping the South locate the area where it was being dug. The North dug hundreds of meters of rock to attempt to build a means of gaining entry into the South. This...More

Highly recommend visiting the third tunnel if you can handle the physical exertion. There is a fairly steep incline that you must go down for ~300 m to get to the actual tunnel. The tunnel itself is not very large and if you are tall,...More

Going down is easy, coming back not so much! Wear comfy shoes and deodorant! And wear the helmet they give you the whole time! I banged my head like 5 times!!!

Requires a lot physical exercise. Definitely wear comfortable shoes. You are given a hard hat when you enter the tunnel. Quite a steep decline towards the bottom initially. The flat part towards the center has a low ceiling and the hard hats come in handy!...More

Overall I enjoyed the third tunnel but it is a taxing hike back up to the top of the tunnel. Crazy to think of how much time it took to build that.

Our walk inside The Third Tunnel is a very good experience and exercise for me. It was 400 meters downward, with aircon system and wood benches provided along the way. The facility was also provided with sturdy rubber matting for safety in walking downward. The...More

Unfortunately photographs are not allowed in the third tunnel since you cannot bring anything with you into the tunnel other than the clothes you are wearing and a hard hat. The tunnel is 73 meters underground so the tunnel leading to the third tunnel is...More
