Come with us as we enter the DPRK to join in on the massive celebrations for Liberation day! This holiday marks the end of the Japanese occupation of Korea and considered one of the biggest national holidays. During this tour we will be taking part in all the official celebrations, as well as hanging out and dancing and singing with locals in the park, watching the fireworks and participating in the Mass Dance!
During our visit we’ll visit the Mausoleum where both President Kim Il Sung and General Kim Jong Il lay in state. We’ll also experience the deep Pyongyang metro as we ride not two but six stations of line 1! We’ll also have an opportunity to visit the Korean War Museum and see the North Korean’s story of the war that took place against the Americans. No trip to the DPRK is complete without visiting Panmumjom (the DMZ) from the North side where North and South Korea meet head on! As well as lots more to do and see.
We’ve combined this unique DPRK holiday with a very exciting trip up to Mt Paektu in the far north east of Korea. We’ll be chartering our very own plane to reach a path well off the beaten track! Whilst we’re exploring the north east region we’ll stop by Secret Base Camp where Kim Jong Il was born, early revolutionary camp sites where the Koreans began to stage their attack against the Japanese and to stay overnight in the quiet, gorgeous town of Samjiyon.
This is one of the biggest holidays of the year and with our very own flight up to Mt. Paektu, it’s an adventure not to be missed!
