Dora Observatory is on the South Korean side of the 38th parallel and it replaced the previous Songaksan Observation Post which was closed.
Situated on top of Dorasan (Mount Dora), the observatory looks across the Demilitarized Zone.
It is the part of South Korea closest to the North. The observatory offers 500 seats, VIP rooms, and abundant parking space.
It was first opened to the public in January 1987.
Visitors can see North Korea and its various locations including Gaeseong, Songaksan, Kim Il-Sung Statue, and Cooperation Farm.
Visitors who want to go to Dora Observatory must participate in the DMZ Peace & Security Tourist Program because this area restricts civilian access.
