The itinerary is a pre-planned itinerary, which we intend to follow accordingly. However, it is also normal for DPRK tourism that certain program points may be modified or replaced by the North Koreans at short notice. Usually, such changes only happen to the order of events, but in rare occurances also to larger parts of the itinerary. We as a travel intermediary between our clients and the North Korean government tourism agency are not responsible for any of such short-term changes. We therefore we ask you for your understanding that in the event of such changes, the tour can neither be fully, nor partially refunded.

Tour description

The Army Day on 27 th April is certainly one of the most important holidays in North Korea. You will notice that streets, avenues, houses and everything else will be decorated in a festive mood to celebrate the founding of the Korean People’s Army. In Pyongyang, thousands of people will gather in front of the Mansudae Grand Monuments to pay their respect to the giant bronze statues of President Kim Il Sung and Leader Kim Jong Il.

On our Army Day Tour you will have the opportunity to witness these celebrations. The tour also includes sightseeing in the capital Pyongyang, where you will visit many of the famous monuments. 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.
