Our tour of the DMZ took us to the Third Tunnel. South Korea discovered several tunnels under the border which would have provided North Korea the opportunity to initiate a surprise attack. South Korea discovered Tunnel Number 3 in October 1978 with information provided by a North Korean defector.
We were not allowed to take a camera into the tunnel ... but a door was open so I could photograph the hard hats required.
We walked down a 350 meter ramp to the tunnel. The tunnel runs another 20 meters to where the South Koreas blocked.
South Korea still strives for unification.
The tunnel center also offers an informative museum of the Korean Conflict.
Next stop: Dora Observatory.
