The Korean peninsula is home to a single nation of people with the same language and ethnicity, divided in two. The Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) is a buffer zone, which was established on July 27, 1953, when the Armistice Agreement was signed during the Korean War. The DMZ vividly captures the scars and wounds of the Korean War as well as the wishes and hopes for the future.

Rising dramatically from the southern plain of the Imjin River right next to DMZ area, its sharp rocky summit watches north over the DMZ.

After lunch with the delicious duck barbecue, going to Gamaksan Mountain to visit Memorial Gloucester Valley Battle, a battlefield between Chinese and U.N. forces and enjoy beautiful mountains and valley crossing the suspension bridge.
