We are proud to introduce a our new tour concept for the DPRK – A VIP photo tour run by photographers for photographers. This tour will be capped at 6 people in order to present you with the best and rarest opportunity to photograph daily life in the DPRK.
This is not a conventional DPRK tour that you may have heard of. Besides the usual stops at Mansudae Grand Monument and Kumsusan Palace of the Sun, we have designed an itinerary that allows you time in key places to get that perfect shot. We get up super early to catch sunrise along scenic spots like the Taedong River and the Juche Tower. As well as setting up our gear over looking the most iconic 105 storey Ryugyong Hotel and other various street scenes/famous landmarks at sunset. One of our expert YPT guides will be on hand to make sure we push the boundaries and get to the sites you want to – something only made possible with a small group.
During our stay we’ll obtain some of the highest rooms available in the 47 storey Yanggakdo Hotel which overlooks the Taendong River and Pyongyang skyline for a perfect vantage point to do some time lapse and long-exposure night shots. Our visit to the Chollima Steelworks Factory is an absolute photographer’s paradise with a retro soviet themed factory built during the 50’s of workers wearing old-school uniforms. We’ll also be photographing the many of Pyongyang’s futuristic and retro buildings for great architectural photos.
Our incredible relationship we have built with the Korean guides over the last 10 years will allow us to move as a small group with great flexibility for any photo opportunity.
The group is maxed at 6 people to ensure smooth running, flexibility and plenty of time at each location. The tour will be led by YPT’s very own semi professional photographer and prominent Instagrammer; Shane Horan (@shaneohodhrain) who has visited the DPRK over 40 times and has designed this itinerary.
