The Korean Demilitarized Zone

The DMZ cuts the Korean peninsula roughly in half, crossing the 38th parallel, west end of the DMZ lying south of the parallel and the east end lying north of it. It is the most heavily militarized border in the world.My visit to the DMZ (west end) was an extraordinary experience. You can see the North Korean flagpole, which is the tallest in the world and at the joint security area, a place where North and South Korean forces stand face to face, you can also see North Korean soldiers keeping a close eye on the South.
