Mount Odu Unification Observatory, the nearest Observatory within Korean DMZ


The Mount Odu Unification Observatory (Hanja: 烏頭山統一展望臺) is located in Mt. Odu (367 Seongdong-ri, Tanhyeon-myeon, Paju, Gyeonggi Province) with superb scenic beauty, where Han River meets Imjin River (Northern Dialect: Rimjin River). This observatory is a stone building where has five floors above ground and one underground. It opened to the public 8 Sep. 1992. It is the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ)  with the shortest width among 155 miles of the ceasefire line and is 460m from North Korea. 

From this Observation Platform, Songaksan Diamond Mountains in the city of Kaesong and 63 Building in Seoul are visible. Various photos and computerized screens showing the stark reality of North Korea are displayed on first and second floor. Products from North Korea can also be purchased here. 

P/S: Is there any PyongSu Cetamols sold in this observatory? I have headache....
