    Timeline of Two Koreas'  Most Tensed Moments  1950-1953 - Tragic Korean War & Armistice took place 1968-2016 - Military threats near the board line of Korean Peninsula - Propaganda - Sending spies to South - 4 secret tunnels dug & found Until 2017 - 6 Nuclear / 117 Missile Tests Undergone 2018.4.27 - Historic 2018 Inter-Korean Summit Tour Highlight On 27. April, 2018, the whole world had its eye on one very small, yet most iconic area on the Korean Peninsula, Demilitarized Zone, also known as DMZ. This zone has been known as the most untouched area in the world as no militaries nor civilians can enter from both South and North Korea since Korean War was in ceasefire treaty in 1953. However, now you can get close to DMZ area and have a chance to watch a part of North Korean villages from South side. As the two Koreas have been moving towards to peace and possibly reunified, DMZ may no longer be as iconic or historic as it is now. Join the tour now before it is too late. Tour Details This DMZ morning tour includes visits to major must-see spots in the DMZ with a fully licensed and long experienced DMZ tour guide and hear enlightening commentary on very real stories of North Korea while exploring highlights such as the Dorasan Station, the Dora Observatory, the Third Infiltration Tunnel, the DMZ Theater, the Unification Bridge, Imjingak Park, and others. Explore the emotional story of two Koreas' separation at Imjinhak Park and the Unification Bridge where you can enjoy the view of the DMZ and read about Korean War history. Move to Dorasan Station to see how two Koreas can be one again in the future, with this station opened and trains running. Visit Dora Observatory to have a glimpse of North Koreans' lives and villages. Walk to the Third Tunnel, which was designed to invade South Korea by tanks in secret and was disclosed by one of the North Korean defectors. At the end of the journey, have some tea and ginseng product tasting at Ginseng center and if you select the lunch option, try Bibimbap, a traditional Korean dish with rice and various ingredients, or North Korean style cold noodles, a traditional North Korean dish which was offered for both Korean leaders in the recent summit. You will head back to Seoul, near the City Hall, at around 2:00-3:00 PM depending on your selected option and the traffic. Enjoy other sights such as:  • The Unification Bridge • ID Check • DMZ theater and exhibition hall • Dora Observatory • Dorasan Station • Amethyst or Ginseng Center
