Hello All, The WinK “DMZ Tour of Both Areas” is the best DMZ in Korea. It's gotten so many reviews folks from overseas contact us asking when our tour is to see if it can match up with their visiting days. We have finely tuned an itinerary perfect to see so much in one day. We go to both Imjingak Area and Cheorwon Area in one day.
And the Cheorwon area is also famous in Korea for the awesome canyon rafting course. The cliffs areas are majestic and the surroundings are very unique to see as you float down the river.
So let's combine these two great activities into one with a overnight stay at a nice pension by a river to make it a really fun filled exciting beautiful weekend!
DMZ Tour of Both Areas Day Trip is Also Available: https://www.facebook.com/events/1028282887305553/
Rafting Day Trip Also Available: https://www.facebook.com/events/689843881223151/
RIVER RAFTING The Hantan river course is one of top 3 in Korea. It is unique in that it is a river that winds alongside canyon cliffs on either sides. The raft will run into thrilling rapids at parts of the river and a slow moving tranquil ride on other parts where you can get off the raft to float down the river in you life jacket. And we like to cause trouble by acting like pirates and attacking unsuspecting rafts filled with Koreans by splashing them. Or course they retaliate and it may turn into a real battle for superiority ^^ Oh and we almost forgot! You will also get to dive off the boat flipped upside down as a slide. It’s a lot of fun!
BRIDGE BUNGEE JUMP This is the only bridge jumping bungee jump in Korea. It’s 52 meters of sheer terror as you stare down at the moving water below. Those of us too scared to jump will be cheering you on from below by riverside. You may jump by waist, or if you're feeling particularly daring, by ankle. It’s 30,000 won for waist or 35000 for ankle jump. Pay in advance to make sure there is space. Or pay on the spot but space may not be available.
ATV (4 wheel motor bike) If time allows, we can go for ATV riding. It depends on how long the paintball games take and how many people are interested to do ATV rides. ATV will be 15,000 won and you can pay on the day. The ride will approximately take 1 hour and no licence is required.
LUNCH UNDER THE BRIDGE We will take sandwich materials for lunch under the bridge. There are many places to sit down and relax and watch fearless friends bungee jump. It will be self serve and we plan to offer two kinds. Ham and Cheese (good ham and good kind of cheese) or Peanut Butter and Jelly.
PENSION LODGING We will stay at a beautiful pension by a river with outdoor deck and picnic tables to enjoy the scenic outdoors. Rooms are Korean “ondol” style shared sleeping. If you prefer to get your own room at a much higher price please let us know. The sooner you let us know the more choice available.
BBQ DINNER We will take gear and foods to have an amazing Korean pork barbecue dinner at the pension outdoor picnic tables. We will take enough meat and trimmings for serious food coma. Some say this is the best part of the trip. Vegetarian option is possible. We will make a beer run to the market so you've got plenty of drinks of your choice for the evening.
MAKGEOLLI MUSEUM (Unlimited Drinking) On the way home we will go by our favorite makgeolli museum. So let’s make a stop and you can taste various different kinds of Korean traditional alcohol. The types of alcohol will range from the 5-6% alcohol content (unpasteurized kind that taste fresh and last only a few days to the typical pasteurized that lasts longer and more varied in flavor types) to typical 12% fruity types to the 25-40% strong alcohols. Unlimited tasting included in the trip price.
DMZ TOUR of BOTH AREAS As far as DMZ tours go there are two main areas.
The first is the Im Jin Gak area to the northwest, where you can enjoy the Freedom Bridge and Tunnel #3, which is directly across. You can also explore the observation deck, where you can see the Gaesung Industrial Complex and North Korean towns and North Koreans moving about.
The second is the Cheorwon area which is about 1 hour east from Imjingak and directly north of Seoul where you can go to a very nice observation deck and Tunnel #2, as well as a battle field where a soldier who is currently on guard who speaks English will take you on a fascinating tour.
While Im Jin Gak is developed and modern, full of food stalls, fanfare and general hustle and bustle, Cheorwon is much quieter and traditional, preserving the way it's been for decades. The Cheorwon area also tends to be more lenient on taking photos as well. Although a majority of people prefer Cheorwon, both are worth seeing, and it really depends on your preference.
The difference between these areas is that Im Jin Gak is more famous (gateway to Gaesung business complex as well as Panmunjum with the main bridge that would connect north and south) and more crowded and more developed with food stalls and fanfare.
Most DMZ tours only allow you to see one area or the other. Since it’s tough to decide which we decided that we should do both!
This is the best DMZ tour in Korea. Period. Other "DMZ tours" do only half the trip. It’s like getting half the meal or watching half of a movie. Not cool.
To do both areas we have to leave early and stick to schedule.
And the monorail ride up to the observation deck is included in the price!^^
We must receive passport # or ARC # IN ADVANCE so we can print it out on a list to submit. And you MUST bring your passport or ARC with you. You must have either with you to get past. Please include this information in the email (email@example.com) you send to us.
There is no dress code except that you are not wearing something obscene or something that could be a problem walking in Seoul.
The floor of the tunnel has an uneven surface, so certain types of shoes like high heels would not be advised. Korean nationals can also join.
For lunch you will be free to choose from a variety of Korean restaurants including within walking distance: Marinated Beef Bulgogi Hot Clay Bowl Bi Bim Bob Kalgucsoo Mandoo Dumpling Noodle House Tofu House
If you are a fast eater you will have time to walk down to the canyon. Also there is a statue of Im Kuk Jeong who is like the Korean Robinhood. And really, who doesn't love Robin Hood?
We looked into Panmunjum/JSA visit and found out that the only way to go there is by a tour package ran by 4 government authorized travel agencies. The panmunjum only day trip is 77,000 won and starts from Seoul. If you add the tunnel #3 tour it is 125,000 won. It’s a bit pricey and no way to do Panmujum and both areas of the DMZ in one day. We suggest you do our both areas of DMZ trip and then at a later time do the Panmunjum only tour if time allows.
