Legacies of the Korean War in Panmunjeom

 

Panmunjeom – Last Cold War Frontier

It’s often said that the Korean Demilitarized Zone, or DMZ, is the most dangerous place on Earth. This distinction is probably technically true - the mountains and hillsides on both sides of the 4km strip of land separating the two Koreas bristles with troops, guard posts, tanks, missile, bunkers, gun emplacements, land mines and other tools of death and destruction. A one-hole golf course at a military base in Panmunjeom, the truce village that has come to symbolize the world’s last Cold War frontier, warns not to retrieve balls from a fairway lined by land mines - once designated as the “world’s most dangerous golf course.”

Korea DMZ

Yet the DMZ is perhaps the supreme irony in a land of ironies. As you gaze out upon the DMZ from Checkpoint 3 of Panmunjeom’s Joint Security Area, your attention is drawn not to the rare opportunity to peek into mysterious North Korea, the North Korean soldiers perched on the watchtower nearby, or your chances of survival in a sudden (and highly unlikely) re-opening of hostilities. Instead, you’re captivated by the supreme tranquility - the quiet, the lush green hillsides, the rare birds swooping into untouched marshlands. Here, at the most militarized border on the planet, you feel completely at peace.
The DMZ stretches some 248 kilometers across the Korean Peninsula from the mouth of the Imjin River in the west to the town of Goseong in the east. The demilitarized zone itself, where human activity has been greatly limited for the last half-century, has become one of Asia’s greatest nature preserves. In the sparsely populated hinterlands just outside the zone, where it seems soldiers outnumber civilians, you can find both towering monuments to battles won and derelict ruins that stand witness to the tragedy of war.

No one can properly take in the entire DMZ area over the course of a single weekend, but if you’re in Seoul, the peace village of Panmunjeom, the touching Imjingak park and the beautiful mountains and rivers of Cheorwon offer the traveler a real glimpse of the history and culture of this most uniquely Korean tourist destination.

 

Korea is the only divided country in the world. After the Korean War (June 25 1950 – July 27 1953), South Korea and North Korea established a border that cut the Korean peninsula roughly in half. Stretching for 2km on either side of this border is the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ).  As one of the last relics of the Cold War, the DMZ attracts a great deal of public interest, and is a popular destination for travelers visiting Korea.  Despite the fact that this is the most heavily armed border in the world, it is extremely rare that any hostilities take place. These days the DMZ is a safe destination that we would thoroughly recommend to any traveler.  The DMZ and its surroundings contain many interesting historical sights and pristine untouched natural surroundings.

PANMUNJEOM
 
Various organizations offer DMZ guided tours.  Itineraries differ, but most tours will take visitors to an observatory, one of North Korea’s infiltration tunnels, a military base, and right into Panmunjeom, the Joint Security Area in the middle of the DMZ where negotiations between the two sides are held

Buffering hostilities from the north and south, the heavily guarded premises of Panmunjeom are located in the middle of the demilitarized zone (DMZ) and remain reserved strictly for political engagements. Providing the only road connecting the two countries, it is here where the historical signing of the Armistice Agreement took place between Communist forces and the United Nations Command (UNC) in 1953 after a succession of peace talks that lasted more than two years. However, although the event signaled an end to the Korean War, tensions resurfaced once again in 1976 when North Korean guards killed two American soldiers a short distance away, during the famous ‘Tree Killing Event’.

Although the premises remain a huge tourist attraction, pressure continues to swell and the de facto zone remains a virtual hot bed of unpredictability. Visitors are cautioned to follow strict protocol as not to upset northern officials. Yet such awareness seems to have very little effect in detracting tourists from witnessing such cultural differences up close. In fact, at the time of this writer’s journey, I was informed that bookings needed to be made far in advance as seats filled up extremely fast. Indeed, Panmunjeom was arguably the most eagerly awaited highlight of the journey. But although it remains a huge draw card to the tour itself, several other stops along the way proved equally rewarding.
