D.M.Z  Tour  &  Memorial Gloucester Valley Battle

TAGY Travel Korea

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.

After touring DMZ you are going to go on a tour to Gamaksan Suspension Bridge. Gamak-san is a mountain of great prominence. Rising dramatically from the southern plain of the Imjin River right next to DMZ area, its sharp rocky summit watches north over the DMZ.  While it’s not the longest anymore, the Gamaksan Suspension Bridge is substantial and pretty awe-inspiring. Enjoy the great experience of seeing a cool view over Silmari Valley on the cool bridge, which is 150m long.

TOUR  DESCRIPTION

It is a tour to look around the Demilitarized zone, the symbol of the division of the Korean Peninsula for about 3hours. After lunch with the delicious duck barbecue, going to Gamaksan Mountain to enjoy beautiful mountains and valley crossing the suspension bridge.
