  • Short mono rail trip up to the deck takes about a min or so. It is more like a tram i guess. Can see the North Korean side but nothing is amazing or great. I thought it was rather boring. HOWEVER...

  • Wasn’t able to actually go and see this area because we didn’t realize you have to make reservations with a tour agency to get there. That’s alright though, we drove up to the gate a there were some Korean military guys there that were very nice and gave us some information about where to get tickets. Ticket office closed at 2:30pm so we just missed it lol.
  • Cheorwon Peace Observatory offers a panoramic view of the DMZ (Demilitarized Zone separating North and South Korea) in the central forward area of Cheorwon-gun, Gangwon-do. From this observatory, one can see the Cheorwon plain, areas of the DMZ, and even North Korea. Photos of the 2nd Infiltration Tunnel, military barracks, checkpoints, and the DMZ are exhibited here. Visitors can easily get to the observatory using the 50-person monorail, see the remains of the ancient Taebongguk (nation), and even see the faces of North Korean soldiers through binoculars.
