The Demilitarised zone, also known as the DMZ is a 4km-wide, 250km long heavily mined and guarded buffer that separates North Korea from South Korea.

An enduring symbol of the Cold War, the DMZ is now a surreal tourist draw on both sides of the border. The tension is most palpable in the Joint Security Area (JSA). The JSA is a neutral area built after the 1953 armistice for the holding of peace talks which can only be visited by a select few including international dignitaries.

There are several observation points along the South Korean side of the DMZ which allow visitors to peer into the secretive North. Special conditions are in place for those wanting to visit the DMZ, so please observe all rules, customs, and strict security measures.
