Get a closer look at North Korea from Dora Observatory. Located at the borders of the two countries, the observatory presents a rare glimpse of the reclusive northern neighbor. Take photos--as long as you are not crossing the yellow line--or look through the binoculars found on the balcony of the observatory. The small slice of the DPRK that you'll see includes a hotel and a propaganda village with empty buildings.

Such an amazing view into North Korea. You can see the flag towers and fake cities. They provide plenty of free-to-use binoculars for peeking in. I got some pretty good shots although I could have done a lot better with a DSLR and optical zoom lens. Go visit the DMZ! After learning about and seeing even a portion of North Korea you'll love and respect your homeland like you never did before.
Very interesting. Best with clear weather. A bit hazy when we went so not the best of views. Bring a camera with good zoom lens!
