See the land that is out of reach, North Korea, at Chilsung Observatory.


This observatory is managed by the Army of 7th Division. First built in 1991, but over 20 years of aging, it was remodeled with modern methods. It is the main observatory located in Civilian Control Line, only allowed to visit 3 times a day and taking photo is prohibited, however people continuously visit the Chilsung observatory every day, since you can see beautiful mountains of North Korea, and animals living in DMZ zone. Sometimes soldiers feed the boars that live near the area of the observatory. In order to enter, you must ask permit from Sanyang-ri soldier information center on the day.
