DMZ Peace Train

DMZ Peace Train

평화열차 DMZ 트레인

This special tourist train service transports visitors to the train terminals closest to the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ), providing a unique view of the pristine nature that has developed in the area along the DMZ, while also providing a glimpse into the tragedy of the nation’s division as well as hope for the reunification of the two Koreas. The train has two routes - One heads northwest along the Gyeongui Line to Dorasan Station in Paju, while the other one heads northeast along the Gyeongwon Line towards Baengmagoji Station in Cheorwon. The Gyeongui Line had originally run through Pyongyang, the capital of North Korea, while the Gyeongwon Line ran to the port city of Wonsan, on the eastern coast of North Korea. 

 

Courses

 


Gyeongui Line


The Gyeongui Line terminates at Dorasan Station, which is located within the Civilian Line of Control. This means that foreign tourists must bring their passports to be checked by South Korean military personnel at Imjingak Station before hopping back on the train to Dorasan. Those without their passport will not be able to enter Dorasan Station. The station itself is rather eerie; A pristine modern station deserted of train traffic, with no one but a handful of Korail employees and soldiers inside. Freight trains used to cross the border shipping goods from the Kaesong Industrial Complex, but a worsening in inter-Korean relations put a stop to it for now. A large map details a future Trans-Eurasian rail network where passengers would be able to travel from Busan to Lisbon in the event that South Korean trains will be allowed to cross the border. Visitors can walk around the platforms and admire the beautiful natural scenery surrounding the station.

Gyeongwon Line

 

The Gyeongwon Line terminates at Baengmagoji Station, which is located in Cheorwon County, the only locality that was divided in the aftermath of the Korean War. After arriving at Baengmagoji Station, visitors will take a shuttle bus tour of the surrounding sites along the DMZ, such as the Baengmagoji Battle Monument, Cheorwon Peace Observatory, and the old Cheorwon Korean Workers’ Party headquarters. Because some of these sites are located inside the Civilian Line of Control, foreign tourists are required to bring along their passport to be checked by South Korean military personnel before entering. Those without a passport will not be allowed on the tour.
