DMZ

DMZ

Korean Demilitarized Zone: Korea is the only divided country in the world, and the DMZ is that area between the two Koreas. After the Korean War (June 25 1950 – July 27 1953), South Korea and North Korea established a border that cut the Korean peninsula roughly in half.

Various organizations offer DMZ guided tours.  Itineraries differ, but most tours will take visitors to an observatory, (one of North Korea’s infiltration tunnels,) a military base, and right into Panmunjeom,. This is the Joint Security Area in the middle of the DMZ where negotiations between the two sides are held.
