DMZ and JSA Tours: From Division to Peace
The DMZ (Demilitarized Zone) and JSA (Joint Security Area, also known as Panmunjom) tell the extraordinary story of a divided Korea. Join one of these specialized tours and visit the historic remnants that echo the strife and tragedy of the Korean War. Today these sites reveal a hope for reunification and lasting peace, following the historic North-South Korean summit.
Visit some of the most moving locations such as the Imjingak Park, the Third Tunnel of Infiltration, Freedom House, and the Bridge of No Return. If you want to peer into North Korea, make sure you book a tour that goes to the Dora Observatory. JSA tours will take you to see the Freedom House and the Military Armistice Commission Conference Room where talks are held between North and South Korea and the US.

The areas of DMZ and JSA can only be visited with an organized tour and must be booked in advance.

Please Note
In light of the ongoing talks between North Korea and South Korea, the JSA is often closed by the United Nations Command (UNC) due to military activities. But you can still experience the DMZ with these DMZ only tours.
