Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) and Joint Security Area (JSA) Day tour (from Seoul)

Go as close as possible to the iconic de facto border between North and South Korea and the Cold War’s last frontier. Then venture to Panmunjom, one of the world’s most heavily armed areas.

The Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) is perhaps the most sensitive buffer zone which splits the Korean Peninsula into what we know today as North and South Korea. Established during the Korean War, it serves as a poignant reminder of the war and its casualties. Walk on the Bridge of Freedom, which the South Koreans used to return to their motherland after the Armistice Agreement was signed. Then check out the 3rd Tunnel, a secret route the North Koreans previously used to launch surprise attacks. Also not to be missed is the Dora Observatory, where you can catch a glimpse into North Korea and the iconic Kim II-Sung statue.

After stopping for a local lunch, you will be ushered through the checkpoint at Panmunjom, also known as the Joint Security Area (JSA). This supposedly neutral zone is where you will observe the Freedom House, and learn about the Bridge of No Return and the tragic Ax Murder Incident.

With fearsome guards on patrol and chilling stories that’ll send tingles down your spine, this is truly a once in a lifetime experience not to be missed!
