Goseong Unification Observatory
Most tourists know about Western Demilitarized Zone (DMZ), but few know about Eastern Demilitarized Zone (DMZ). South and North Koreas drew a truce line to cross the Korean Peninsula. The line is from Imjingang River in the west to the Goseong-gun in the east. So the Demilitarized Zone extends largely from Gyeonggi-do to Gangwon-do and Goseong DMZ is the eastern one.

Goseong is a county in Gwangwon Province. Located north of 38th parallel, Goseong-gun is about 1 hour by road from Sokcho city. If you would like to take a tour to Goseong DMZ, transportations of motocycle, bicycle or foot are forbidden. Built in 1983, Goseong Unification Observatory is the closest location to North Korea and is the oldest viewing post present in Korea. Most visitors are the elderly Koreans who were separated from their families during the Korean War. They come here to see their hometown in the hope of unification. The view from the platform is magnificent, that you can witness the beautiful Mt. Geumgang, Haegeumgang and some islands. They are all parts of North Korea. Here’s the DMZ Museum near the observatory. The exhibitions in the museum are showing people about the war.
