This is one of our most exciting trips of the year as we’re spicing up our annual DPRK Grand National Day Tour! We’ll not only be heading into Pyongyang for the massive national day celebrations, we’ll then be making our way well off the beaten track by jumping aboard an Air Koryo domestic flight to the far north east of Korea to the infamous city of Chongjin. We’ll explore the largely rural province of North Hamgyong and spend a highlight evening with a Korean family near the spectacular Mt Chilbo.
During our tour in Pyongyang we’ll be visiting the Kim Il Sung Square, stopping by a local fun fair, exploring the deep Pyongyang Metro, visiting the Mausoleum where Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il lay in state, checking out the War Museum, heading down to the DMZ and much much more!
On National Day we’ll visit Moran Hill which is extremely popular for the locals to gather for BBQs, singing and lots of dancing! We will be taking part in every facet of the celebration process including the fireworks, mass dancing and other surprises along our way!
After the party finishes in Pyongyang, we’ll board our flight to Orang Airport located in the deep rural areas of the DPRK. We’ll spend our first night up in Chongjin city, after which we’ll then head down towards Mt. Chilbo, one of the very sacred and beautiful mountains in Korea. Here we’ll be able to meet, play, eat and stay overnight with a DPRKorean family. During the end of our tour we’ll head up towards Gyongsong city, a small city most famous for its mineral spa waters, before boarding a flight back to Pyongyang then finishing up back in Beijing by train or Air Koryo flight.
Don’t waste this perfect opportunity to explore a part of Korea that’s mostly forgotten by tourists while also joining us for all the festivities!
