This observatory is located right at the Northern Limit Line (NLL), or in a simple term: Northern and sea border with North Korea. If you want a clear view of the Northern territory and their villages, the Odusan Observatory and Ganghwa Observatory are the best places to visit (Odusan wins a little because their binoculars are free). Prepare your KRW 500 coin here because the views are definitely worthwhile. You can also see the Northern territory well without binoculars. On a good weather day, you can even see Kaesong from the binocular.
