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 winter season is one of the most exciting times to visit North Korea. However, there are usually not many other tourists around, meaning that you will almost be the only tourists to visit the country during that time. Temperatures usually drop below zero degrees. On our Winter Tour you will see the impressive monumental structures and statues in Pyongyang, like the Arch of Triumph, the Monument to Party Founding and the Tower of the Juche Idea. 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 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.
