Choice No. 1 tour! NLL tour is one of the most unique sights seeing among foreigners!!
NLL is the spot you can feel and see the vivid images of life (seeing farm village, houses, school, and community buildings of true North Korean inhabitants)
The Northern Limit line is made after a truce agreement which took place July 27, 1953. The boundary of the west coast lines up from Ganghwado to the 5 northwestern islands.
After the Northern Limit line was made, North Korea did not accept it and frictions between the two Korea occurred. North Korea has then designated a northern limit line themselves and to replace the line many fights had occurred. Some examples are the 1st and 2nd Battle of Yeonpyeong, South Korean Navy Corvette Cheonan, and the shelling of Yeonpyeong Island.
NLL is a threatening place where many conflicts between the South and North Korea have occurred, such as Yeonpyeong Naval battle, Cheonan Ship explosion incident, and others.
NLL means Northen Limit Line, after an armistice agreement in July 27th, 1953. This line is a national border of the Western Sea, which covers from Gangwhado Island to the 5 islands in the Western Sea. Nevertheless the NLL is set through the agreement and North Korea does not accept it. They recorded their own NLL, which causes constant issues.

Course

  • Hotel
  • ID Check

    If you look outside, you can see some soldiers wearing a green color camouflage uniform. They are South Korean soldiers or ROK soldiers currently serving their mandatory military service for 21 months. All men in South Korea have to serve the military mandatorily for 21 months, but it’s not required for women. I also served for 26 months a long time ago right after college, and it was longer than right now. Military service is getting shorter and shorter. However, the situation is a lot more terrible in North Korea. First of all, it’s mandatory for both genders, men and women. Men have to serve for 10 years while women serve for 7 years, but this is just for normal kinds of soldiers. For a special forces like Marine Corps and Airborne, they have to serve for 13 years.

    The Northern Limit Line has existed for many decades, and both South and North Korea have acknowledged that a practical separation line exists in the waters off the east and west coasts of the Korean peninsula. However, South Korea claims the NLL as the legal boundary, while the DPRK claims a line much futher to the south, which encompasses many islands effectively occupied by the South. Clashes in the disputed waters of the Yellow Sea have happened before, especially during crab fishing season. In 1999 and 2002, skirmishes resulted in casualties on both sides.

    The colour of Amethyst is as unique as it is seductive, though in fact this gemstone of all gemstones is said to protect its wearer against seduction. Korean Amethyst is extravagance in violet since it has been formed from granite stone base since 5000 years. Moses described it as a symbol of the Spirit of God in the official robes of the High Priest of the Jews, and the Russian Empress Catherine the Great sent thousands of miners into the Urals to look for it. It was said to protect crops against tempests and locusts, bring good fortune in war and in the hunt, drive out evil spirits and inspire the intellect.

    My tour guide for NLL must have born to be a guide - she is so good at it. She guided me through the Japanese conquer to things that led to Korean war, it’s after effect and many more; along with sense of humor. As far as the trip itself, it is absolute terrific. I can’t imagine it being any better.
