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

Experience North Korea as during one of the most exciting travel times and be part among the few Western tourists, which have been granted the privilege to spend New Years Eve in the North Korean capital. See the huge fireworks in Pyongyang and toast together with the your North Korean hosts. But that’s not all: Your tour also includes the main attractions of Pyongyang. 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 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.

Furthermore you will have an exclusive look at the Korean West Coast and the West Sea Barrage (a giant dam regulating the water level of the Taedong River). The journey will take you further into the countryside near Mt. Kuwol, Haeju and Sinchon, where you will visit the famous Museum of US War Atrocities.
