Perched on a hill overlooking the small village of Gochang, Moyang Fortress is an impressive structure built in 1453 during the Joseon dynasty. The ivy-covered, 1.6km-long fortress wall with three gates surrounds a complex of reconstructed buildings including a prison and pavilion.
The Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) & Joint Security Area (JSA)
