The first stop of the tour was Dora Observatory. We reached a checkpoint and a South Korean soldier hopped on the tour bus to check everyone's passport.

As we arrived at the observatory, we were told by our tour guide to absolutely follow the photography regulations or our cameras would be confiscated. Alrighty then. Here is the crazy rule: no photos taken from the edge of the deck. There was a line drawn about 15 or 20 feet back and photos were permitted only behind that line. So here's how far back we had to be in order to point a camera (see the woman on the right with a soldier eyeing her, and she's in front of the line).
Here's a few more pics of the deck & binoculars available.
There was maybe some stealth shooting going on but I didn't dare with watchful eyes everywhere.
