FD Tour of the Demilitarised Zone (DMZ) & Panmunjom (Shared)


| May 15, 2020

The Demilitarised Zone (DMZ) refers to an area 4km wide and 248km long that divides North and South Korea, and is thought to be the most heavily fortified border in the world. Visit the Dora observatory, which allows visitors to see North Korean military personnel as well as great views of the Geumgangsan Diamond Mountains and the famous propaganda village of Gijeong-dong. On the northern side of the Military Demarcation Line, which runs through the middle of the DMZ, visit Panmunjom, or ‘Truce Village’, where the 1953 Korean Armistice Agreement that paused the Korean War was signed. The village is also home to the United Nations (UN) buildings where peace talks took place between the UN, the Chinese, and North Korean officials. Nearby, the Peace Talks House was constructed to provide a place for North and South Korean officials to host peace talks and meetings.
