Joint Security Area (JSA)

Part 2 of my visit into the DMZ involved a trip to the Joint Security Area which is run by the Republic of Korea (ROK) soldiers and the US Armed forces. At all times we had a US Soldier accompany us and ROK soldiers keeping an eye out for any trouble.

Below is a photo of the border which is represented by the concrete strip. The photo was taken from the NK side looking back into SK.

Two NK Soldiers decided to come for a walk while we were taking photographs. What you can’t see is the guard towers to both sides with NK guards watching us at all times. We were¬†only allowed to photograph straight ahead. ¬†Apparently if you break these rules the soldiers will erase all photos from your camera or phone.
