Korean Demilitarized Zone

The Korean Demilitarized Zone is the famous strip of land separating South Korea from North Korea, and it roughly divides the Korean peninsula in half. It was established at the end of the Korean War in a 1953 agreement between North Korea, China, and the United Nations. The zone is over 250 km (160 miles) long and 4 km (2.5 miles) wide, stretching from the mouth of the Imjingang River in the east to Goseong in the west. For 2 km on either side of the dividing line, military activity is forbidden. There is a meeting point in the Joint Security Area where negotiations take place. The zone has been restricted from humans for about 60 years now, which has led to an abundance of wildlife (like the rare and endangered Siberian tiger); the unofficial "nature reserve"is popular among eco-tourists.  

Opening Hours: March to October 09:00 to 18:00 (admission to 17:00); November to February 09:00 to 17:00 (Admission to 16:00); Saturdays and public holidays in May to August 09:00 to 19:00 (admission to 18:00)
