Overview
This tour is about North & South Korea war history. Tourists who have high curiosity about the war or whom want to know deeply about Korea should join this tour. The 3rd tunnel is the main focus on this tour.
What to Expect
The Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) is perhaps one of the most unusual tourist destinations in the world. The DMZ was created by the Korean Armistice Agreements, which was signed on July 27, 1953. The Armistice created a 155-mile long military demarcation line (MDL) with a 2 kilometer wide demilitarized zone on each side of it (a total width of 4 kilometers). North and south were divided after WWII, and exchanges between the North and South were stopped at the DMZ. The Joint Security Area (JSA) is the only portion of the Korean Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) where North and South Korean forces stand face-to-face. If the weather is good enough at the Doran observatory, you can see North Korea without a telescope. 
  
The 3rd Tunnel

The 3rd tunnel is a massive North Korean-dug tunnel which was planned as a pathway for invasion to the south, if war had erupted and it had not been discovered. The 3rd Tunnel was discovered in 1978 by Korean forces. It spans over 1635 meters in length, 2 meters in width, 2 meters in height and is located 52 km from Seoul. It is estimated that approximately 30,000 soldiers could move through the tunnel per hour. Once the tunnel was found, North Koreans insisted it was intentionally made by the southern army to invade North Korea, but their insistence was proven untrue. 
  
Dora Observatory

Dora Observatory is on the South Korean side of the 38th parallel. Situated on top of Dorasan (Mount Dora), the observatory looks across the demilitarized zone. It is the part of South Korea closest to the north. Visitors can catch a rare glimpse of the reclusive North Korean state through binoculars from the 304 square feet, 500-person capacity observatory. They will be able to see the North Korean propaganda village situated in the DMZ, a remnant of the old prosperity of the North, and can see as far as the city of Kaesong. The observatory is very close to the Third Tunnel. The Dorasan Station, also nearby, is designed to be the station that connects the railroads of the south and north one day in the future.
