Important Things You Need To Know Before Visiting The World’S Most Dangerous Border

Get to know before visit DMZ

The Korean Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) runs across the Korean Peninsula separating North and South Korea. Following the 38th parallel north, a 4 km (2.5 miles) wide DMZ running for 240 km (150 miles) marks a cease-fire line existed at the end of Korean War (1950-53). It was established in 1953 as part of the Armistice Agreement between United Nations, North Korea, and China to end the war.

Coming to the DMZ, you can still feel the tension between the two countries at the sight of tank traps, electric fences, landmines and armies in full battle readiness. A glance at the soldiers standing guard with dark shades in military pose alone is already intimidating enough.

These are messages from citizens living in the Southern part to their beloved relatives in the North whom they have not been able to see in decades since the demarcation. At the front of the bridge, opposite the Imjingak, stands Mangbaedan Memorial Altar – famous for being the place where North Koreans pay visit to perform ancestral rites every New Year’s Day and Chuseok (Mid-Autumn Festival).

The Third Tunnel

The Third Tunnel (also known by the name The Third Tunnel of Aggression or Third Infiltration Tunnel) is an actual tunnel among four known ones in the area of DMZ. This particular subterranean passage was incompletely dug by the North Koreans with the intention of launching a surprise attack on Seoul, but it was discovered by the South Koreans at the end of 1970s. It has since been made into a tourist attraction but still under military surveillance. With the measurements of 1 mile in length, nearly 2 meters in height and 2.1 meters in width, the tunnel runs through 240 ft below the ground, which is approximately equivalent to a 25-storey underground building, and can accommodate about 30,000 soldiers at a time.

Another stop well worth the visit during your time in DMZ is Dorasan Station.

Regrettably, due to the palpable tension between the two countries, the station is almost empty and the train track from the South to the North has never been in use. The station now mainly serves as a tourist attraction, used only by those who work or visit the station. Nevertheless, there is always a message hidden behind Dorasan Station – it represents the hope for the eventual reunification of the two Koreas in every citizen. Although it is not as bustling and beautifully designed as other stations throughout the country, Dorasan has its own oddly captivating features that leave a strong impression on any visitors coming to the site.

How to visit DMZ

As the DMZ has restricted civilian access and requires a military escort, you must book a tour from an approved travel agency to explore the site. Once you have decided on your must-see highlights, now it is time for you to pick a tour that is suitable for you regarding budget, time, and the points of interest that are included. You can opt for a full-day trip around DMZ or a half-day tour visiting some major spots with a North Korean defector. Here are some suggestions that you may want to run your eyes over.

Visit DMZ without JSA

Aiming for nothing but a truly authentic experience, Inspitrip is now offering a half-day DMZ tours to visit all the prominent draws

Visit JSA excluding other parts of the DMZ

The JSA tours excluding other parts of the DMZ can be an attractive alternative for those who cannot afford time to go on a full day trip or those who want to focus on one spot rather than rushing around a lot of locations. This tour includes a stop at Imjingak Tourist Resort with Memorial Alter, Bridge of Freedom, and Unification Bell, Camp Bonifas, Freedom House and Military Armistice Commission Building. This option is also cheaper than the joint one.

Joint visit DMZ and JSA

If you have an entire day free, it is best to pay a joint visit to DMZ and JSA in order to gain a comprehensive understanding of the area. This is the most expensive yet best value for money at the same time. However, the downside of the joint tours is that the schedule is tight and you are only allowed to spend a limited time at each location, which can be a nuisance.

Important things you need to know

The Hill Is Full Of Beautiful And Romantic Butterfly Flowers Like A Movie Causing “Fever” In Hoa Binh

Mung hamlet is located at the highest position of Hop Phong commune, Cao Phong district, Hoa Binh province, the climate is especially cool in the summer. This is a locality that is considered as the green lung of the province with 520 hectares of natural forest being zoned and protected by local people.

Previously, the road to Mung was far away with high zigzag slopes, the road surface was jagged with gravel and stones. Since 2011, this road has been concreted 4.5/7km, convenient for vehicles in and out.

From the connecting concrete road to the Mung hamlet is 2.5km long. In addition to the cool climate, visitors are impressed with the terraced fields and flower fields of more than 4 hectares. The winding fields, above the stilt roof, create the scenery of an enchanting mountainous region.

At the foot of the field is an ancient banyan tree with a canopy of several tens of meters wide, which is considered a symbol in the spiritual life of the people of this Muong village.

From 2023, some investors come to Mung hamlet to develop tourism. Ms. Pham Thuy, the owner of homestay and glamping (a type of luxury camping), has been planting flower hills on people’s terraced fields since February this year, along with the bamboo forest.

Flower Hill started welcoming guests on May 22 and attracted an unprecedented number of visitors to this locality, reaching more than 4,000 people up to now.

From a remote village, Mung hamlet has gradually transformed into a romantic and poetic destination, but has not lost the inherent simple beauty of a countryside.

“The whole space is filled with the yellow color of butterfly flowers, as beautiful and poetic as in cartoons,” shared Pham Thi Trang (24 years old, Hanoi). A female tourist visited the flower hill on May 31.

In addition to the yellow butterfly flower hill at an altitude of 200m, on the top of the mountain 900m high, there are pink butterfly flowers and cherry apricot flowers. From the top, visitors can enjoy a panoramic view of the area, ancient banyan trees and yellow butterfly flowers below.

In addition, Mung hamlet also has a bamboo forest with a path through about 300m long for visitors to take pictures and relax. The road to the bamboo forest is quite difficult to go, nearly 3km from the flower hill, need a guide or local people to lead the way.

From here, visitors can enjoy the scenery of the ripe rice season on the terraced fields. Rice in Mung hamlet ripens late, about two weeks before people start reaping.

Coming to Mung hamlet, visitors can also go to homestay and glamping (comfortable camping) to stay overnight and hunt clouds on favorable weather days.

Ticket price to visit the flower hill is 20,000 VND for guests in Hoa Binh, 30,000 VND ($1=24,000 VND)for visitors from outside the province. This revenue has helped to gradually improve the lives of local people.

Hamlet is located about 12km from the road surface of National Highway 6 from Hanoi to Son La, so it is convenient for visitors to visit along the way. Local authorities have proposed to their superiors to develop plans and orientations to develop Mung hamlet into a community  tourist destination.

Next year, Mung will restore the old stilt houses on the terraced fields, build galleries, revive the traditional cultural features of the Muong ethnic group, and attract visitors to learn and experience.
