This fast travel clip follows a group tour that was organised by Koryo Tours and filmed by Adam Ziegenhals.
It explores various areas or sites in the DPRK (North Korea) that you can visit as part of a group tour (or travelling independently as well). The locations here include Beijing (Koryo Tours office), Pyongyang, Kaesong, Nampo, Mt. Myohyang, Panmunjom / DMZ, Mt Paekdu, Mass Games to name a few (more detailed below)
This particular tour that was filmed was called "Liberation Day Long Tour", it is arranged every year in August around a major national holiday (Aug 15th, Liberation Day), this tour also takes an internal charter flight to the sacred Mt. Paekdu, the highest point in Korea, highest crater lake in the world, and the birthplace of the Korean nation, a place of great significance that only a handful of western tourists visit each year.
See the mountain itself as well as the stunning and unique scenery of this remote area and the 'secret camp' a former guerrilla base claimed as the birthplace of Kim Jong Il. Additionally it covers all the best bits of Pyongyang, gets down to the DMZ, and the giant gift halls at Mt, Myohyang, as well as an overnight trip to the west coast port city of Nampo to see engineering, industry, agriculture, and a local orphanage.
This tour is a very comprehensive and unforgettable trip Also note that US citizens can now visit Mt. Paekdu, something impossible until very recently
