  • Visited the 4th Infiltration Tunnel and then came up here. It's pretty cool to look into the DMZ and see North Korean soldiers on their lookout tower peering back. We really enjoyed coming here
  • This was the most impressive place I visited while in (South) Korea. I can't compare this to the bigger DMZ spot which you can visit with tour companies, but I can definitely recommend Eulji Observatory. The quietness makes this place so eerie. The atmosphere is very tense on one side, while on the other side, the South Korean valley sits as if the DPRK is a friendly neighbour. You can see some DPRK controlled huts and border posts and there are some interesting facts written down on a piece of paper. Also, the trip here goes through nice mountainous terrain. Terrifying but amazing!
