Tour description

Even the construction workers have their special day in North Korea. On 21 st May, the efforts of the workers on the country’s building sites will be remembered and honoured. You will witness for yourself that there is a lot of construction going on in and around Pyongyang at the moment. But of course the tour also includes the famous monumental structures and statues that Pyongyang is famous for. A highlight of the tour is certainly the visit to Kumsusan Palace of the Sun, where President Kim Il Sung and Leader Kim Jong Il are lying in state. But that’s not all: you will also visit the Demilitarised Zone (DMZ) on the border to south Korea near Kaesong and Mt. Myohyang. Reaching 1909m altitude, Mt. Myohyang is the second highest mountain in North Korea after Mt. Paekdu. According to its name, Mt. Myohyang is “the mountain of mysterious scents”.

Mt. Myohyang has been regarded as sacred by Koreans for a long time and it is deeply associated with the Tangun myth. The mountain area houses Pohyon Temple, the largest Buddhist shrine in North Korea, as well as the International Friendship Exhibition, a massive underground exhibition of presents from international statesmen and businessmen for the North Korean leaders.
