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

On this group tour you will experience the natural beauty of North Korea beyond the capital Pyongyang. You will see the historical sites of the Korean West Coast, the West Sea Barrage, Mt. Kuwol, the Anak Tomb no. 3 of the Kuguryo Tombs (UNESCO World Heritage Site) and many other places of historical and cultural significance. After exploring the western part of the DPRK, you will visit the Korean East Coast where the group will stay in the city of Wonsan and then continue to Hamhung, the second largest North Korean city. At the end of this unique journey you will spend the last night in Pyongyang. This particular tour is ideal for those who already know Pyongyang from a former visit and are now eager to explore the unknown regions far beyond the usual touristic spots of the country.

The trip can be ideally combined with our Liberation Day Tours or our Football Groundhopping Tour. If you want to combine two tours, we kindly ask you to send us an email to info@pyongyang-travel.com.
