The Unification Observatory has had about two million visitors from its start at 1983 until now. It is located at Goseong-gun of Gangwon-do, in the path to Mt. Geumgang at the age of reconciliation and communication in between the North and the South. In the northernmost observatory of Korea, you can witness the beautiful mountain of the nation, Mt. Geumgang with your own eyes. This experience includes watching the best features of Mt. Geumgang like Biro peak, Ilchul peak, Chaehwa peak, Oknyeo peak, Sinseondae, Guseon peak, Haegeum River, and Gamho. The mountain shows different scenery every season, and every venue bears a story.
The Korean War Experience Museum in the parking lot of the Unification Observatory is a must-see in case of visiting the Observatory. You could deeply feel the reality of the division by looking at the site of war and Mt. Geumgang, where you cannot pay a visit.
