      Hiking trails leading up to the demilitarized zone along the inter-Korean border are welcoming visitors.

      Eleven trails connect to form a 526-km route from Ganghwa, Incheon to Goseong, Gangwon Province.

      The government said Sunday that two trails leading out of Paju, Gyeonggi Province and Goseong, Gangwon Province have reopened after a closure amid the coronavirus pandemic, while five others have been newly opened to the public.

      The other three in Yeoncheon, Gyeonggi Province and Cheorwon and Inje, Gangwon Province are not yet available, as steps are being taken to protect migrant birds and maintenance work is being completed.

      The trails have been set up as part of an agreement between the two Koreas after an inter-Korean summit in September 2018.

      Those who wish to walk on one of the trails should make a reservation at www.dmzwalk.com or via the mobile app Durunubi.
