Taepung Observatory

It was built by the Taepung military unit on Dec. 3, 1991. It is located on Suribong Peak, the highest peak of Mt. Biggisan 65km away from Seoul and 140km away from Pyeongyang.

At first, the south limiting line and the north limiting line were established at the point 2 km away from the Military Demarcation Line, but as North Korea installed an iron railing near by the MDL in 1968, South Korea also installed an iron railing in part in 1978. On the day of good sight, you can see the North Koreans working in the fields without a telescope.
