All Joint Security Area tours (staying on the South Korean side) I have seen depart from Seoul (example 1, example 2, example 3).

Is there any way to sign up in advance for a Joint Security Area tour that departs from Imjingak (which is to my knowledge the closest publicly accessible parking lot)?

  • Do you actually know there are tours from Imjingak? When I was there last year all the JSA tours stopped there on the way back but I don't think any tours originated there. I think it's also a stop for non-JSA tours. Jul 18, 2016 at 21:37
  • @PeterHahndorf I don't. Jul 18, 2016 at 21:52
  • I don't think there is one because of the registration if I recall correctly, DMZ visitors will have check into the tour at the Seoul office so you would have to go there.

Although it would be convenient for you it is not possible: Imjingak is for concerts / festivals, not for DMZ tour pickups.
