Be among the first to peek into another world: the unchanged Democratic People's Republic of Korea

Seasoned travelers know how difficult it is to find truly untraveled places to explore in our modern world, and the importance of seizing an opportunity to be among the first to experience a new destination before tourism’s influence alters its character. North Korea—officially the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, or DPRK— is just such a place. Mostly closed to the outside world for more than a half century, this secretive and largely unchanged land has only begun to welcome foreign visitors. It’s a veritable time capsule that promises visitors a real glimpse into the past as well as rare insight into the modern reality of this last intact remnant of the Cold War. And true to our heritage of exploring new and unknown lands, MTS is among the first to embrace this wonderful opportunity to learn about and engage with the people of North Korea. (NOTE: This entire trip occurs below 6,000' elevation)
