DMZ, Paju

Take a monorail to explore a blame-game tunnel of DMZ, the only official venue for meetings between the ROK and DPRK. With the U.S. overseeing the peace process in the Cold War-divided peninsula, the zone gives you a rare opportunity to tour a military administration line amid heavy security. Official English or Japanese-speaking guides accompany your tour, showing you the venue where the 1953 armistice was signed. Observe a change of joint guards and use a telescope to see the northern part of the divided Korea. You must register at least four days prior to the tour, and for some countries a scanned color copy of your passport is required. Certain nationals may be banned from entry--check before you go. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Paju holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the DMZ and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • We did the tour on our last day of our trip. It is certainly one of the highlights. Worth a visit. You should do the driving in the tunnel. After walking about 10 minutes on foot. Attention: the tunnel is only about 1.60m high and you must walk bent over. There is also a platform with telescopes. For this, you should have a few 500w coins here.
