Tours to North Korea designed exclusively for South Korean tourists
resumed after being canceled earlier this summer.
The tours were canceled following the detention of a South
Korean tourist accused by North Korea of trying to lure a tourist
guide to defect, the Los Angeles office of the Korea National
Tourist Office said. The tours, operated by South Korean
conglomerate Hyundai, depart by ship from the Changjon port to
North Korea's Mount Kumkangsan.
