When to go to North Korea?

The best time to visit North Korea is in late spring (May to June) and autumn (September and October). During these periods the temperature is moderate and the humidity a lot lower, than in the summer (rainy) season. In autumn, the countryside looks awesome with its fascinating colors.

It is very advisable to avoid North Korea during both the rainy season (summer) and during the winter time. The rainy season lasts from July to early September, when North Korea is hot, rainy and humid. The winters are dry, but can become extremely cold, due to the Siberian winds. Always keep in mind the restrictions that apply to a visit to North Korea and make yourself familiar with the local rules that apply.
