The Third Tunnel, Paju

#2 of 6 in Historic Sites in Paju
The Third Tunnel, also known as the third tunnel of aggression, passes under the demilitarized zone between two formerly warring states. In the 1970s, South Korea discovered four out of around a dozen tunnels that North Korea had built while planning the invasion of its neighbor. Nowadays, you can still see the three concrete barricades the South Koreans built to block the military demarcation line at the site. Starting from the lobby, walk down the wide cement incline, which gets narrower and lower as you reach the original section of the tunnel. Keep your helmet on to avoid bumping your head. You can either walk in a crouching position down the long, steep slope, or take a ride on a rail system going into the tunnel.

  • Dig Tunnel No. 3. The tunneling North Korean tunnel was discovered by South Korea, located just 52km from Seoul's capital; Enough tunnels for about 30.000 soldiers can pass through within 1h clock. In the tunnel visit, everyone has to leave the bag, phone, camera,..., every map brought in to the outside insurance cabinet, pass through the inspection security door, get inside the helmet and go down the tunnel. The area has a small lake and garden for everyone to relax and eat. If those who come at the time of noon may be carpeted on the lawn and have lunch brought along if you search for review of the locations in the weld, do not be afraid to visit FB page Live White with all the disability travel experience at the welding IG : Ngocanhcrystal
