We went as part of a tour with korridor, as DMZ got cancelled due to African swine virus. It a look. Out point over to NK, very sad and touching. There is a short video and a little room with pictures, along with a peacetree.

For those with their own transport, this is a great North Korea observatory option. Plentiful coin-operated binoculars, large viewing platforms, and ample parking. The place was virtually empty on a gorgeous spring Saturday, late in the day. We could see homes, farmers, and other daily...More
