Cheolwon DMZ Tour | Preview

Get away from the city and dive into Korea's history and nature on the Cheolwon DMZ tour. 

Learn about Korea's recent history and a rare piece of nature untouched by humans.

1. Baekma Highland Memorial Stone and Hall

Baekma Highland is the grounds of the most violent and intense battle of the Korean War.

The memorial stone and memorial hall was built to comfort the souls of the soldiers who lost their lives fighting in the war. 


The now peaceful views of the Baekma Highland.

The memorial hall has records of the war's affairs as well as displays of the weapons used.

Gangwon Tourism Website

A white horse statue, symbolic of the Baekma Highlands (baekma = white horse). A very dynamic piece in real life.

2. Goseokjeong

Gangwon Tourism Website

You'll be met with one of the most beautiful hidden views of Korea's nature.

Goseokjeong was originally just the name of the pavillion built next to the Hantangang River, but is now a name that refers to the entire surrounding area. 

Cheolwon County Office Website

The giant stone that stands on the Hantangang River ravine is called Goseok.

The mountain and the river make up a beautiful harmony.

The water is so clean, you can almost see the view just from the reflection.

And finally, the view from the observation deck.  

There's even a statue of the Joseon Era Robin Hood figure, Im Kkeokjeong!

Rest and relax in the beautiful nature park of Goseokjeong.

3. The 2nd Tunnel

DMZ is an area where you can really be immersed in Korea's history.

The first stop is an area called the 2nd Tunnel. The sign shows the days of ceasefire.

Gangwon Tourism Website

Cheolwon County Office Website

The 2nd Tunnel is a tunnel that was dug by the North's military to invade the south. It's 3,500 meters long and large enough to allow 30,000 soldiers to get through within an hour. 

Can you feel just how intense the war had been?

4. Peace Observatory

Gangwon Tourism Website

The peace observatory is located within the DMZ, so you cannot reach with via public transportation.

Instead, you can use the monorail.

There's an exhibition about the Korean War on the first floor.

You can take in the views of the border between the South and North from the second floor observatory.

You can see the Pyeonggang Plateau and North Korea's Seonjeon Village from there.

This is where you can get a glimpse of unharmed nature and the curiousity that is North Korea.

5. Woljeongri Station

Gangwon Tourism Website

Woljeongri Station used to be a whistle stop that connected Seoul and the North's Wonsan region.

There were only remains of it used be after the war, but has now been restored.

Joongang Ilbo

Gangwon Tourism Website

This train built in 1912 is now so old that it is rusting and deteriorating by the year.

It feels like a part of the history of the Division.

6. Labor Party Office

The Labor Party Office was made in the Russian architectural style of the time: the walls are thick columns made of bricks. 

This is why it still stands, even after the war.

The bomb marks are vivid on the walls.

It's said that this was where the North would torture their captives.

Many torture devices were found in the air-raid shelter.

Yonhap News

Beyond that, you'll see the Civillian Control Line.

The calm, beautiful views are in such contrast of the violent history of this region.
