A Trip to the Korea DMZ on a Hike or Tour

May 03, 2019 Avatar  TravelStore
You can now hike in Gangwaon Province in South Korea along the Korean Demilitarized Zone or DMZ. The path is a part of the Peace Trail project in South Korea, which includes two additional sites that are not yet open. Visitors may see endangered species in the area as many have migrated to the DMZ since there are no people in the vicinity.

The South Korean military has labored to guarantee the safety of tourists to the Peace Trail project as well as the overall success of the initiative. While relations between North and South Korea have been warming, the DMZ is a fully operational buffer zone that was created in the armistice of the Korean War.

Additionally, visitors may visit the DMZ with a tour. Points of interest include the Joint Security Area, Odusan Unification Observatory, Dora Observatory, and Freedom Bridge.
Some particularly intriguing points of interest are tunnels that North Korea dug in the 1970s in an attempt to invade South Korea. While South Korea has found four tunnels, speculation exists that there are more. At any rate, tourists can visit some of these tunnels. The Third Tunnel of Aggression, discovered by South Korea in 1978, is the most popular.
