S. Korea and N. Korea, the tragedy of modern history
We Koreans are homogeneous nation with the same language and ethnicity, culture, divided in two.
The Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) is a border or buffer zone, which was drawn on July 27, 1953 when the Armistice Agreement was signed after the Korean War.
The DMZ vividly captures the scars and wounds of the Korean War as well as the wishes and hopes for the reunification of two Koreas.
DMZ covers the area from the origin of the Imjingang River in the east, to the town of Goseong in the west.
On either side of the truce line is a 2km-wide stretch of land where military activity is forbidden.
The zone has been protected from human disturbance for about 6 decades and has become a haven for wild animals.
The destinations in this ecological area have been regaining popularity among eco-driven tourists.
** DMZ is closed on Mondays and national holidays
** More importantly, travelers are required to bring legitimate form(s) of identification and/or your passport when going to the DMZ.
** DMZ tour can be cancelled without any notice when unexpected tension is escalated between North and South Korea.

Our family was very satisfied with the service provider by Chris. He was very knowledgable and was well acquainted with Korean history and gave us a good explanation of the DMZ. Chris was also attentive to our needs and we would strongly recommend him as competent and capable tour guide.
