A visit to the so-called "Third Tunnel of Aggression" is included in part of the half day DMZ tour that I had booked the day before in Seoul. The entrance looks innocent enough. Firstly you have to leave your bags and all cameras and mobile...More
We visited the thrid tunnel as part of a tour to the DMZ and this was one of the many fascinating stops on the trip. The thrid tunnel is one of four known tunnels dug by the North Koreans in an attempt to reach South...More

It was a bit exhilarating visiting the 3rd tunnel knowing that there are only 3 concrete security walls separating you from a North Korean invasion. However, for those taller than 160 cm, it can be straining to be always stooping, and that steep return climb...More
It is possible to turn back at any moment. Honestly nothing to see down there. On the end you can find concrete wall. So when you step dowt by wide tunnel and step in to original first meter is same like last one, no... More
