Slater, Chris, Manchester Evening News


ADVENTURE-SEEKERS will soon be able to take a trip from Wigan all the way to North Korea.

People can book sections of the trip independently, and the organisers jokingly say: "For example, if you wish to avoid Wigan for security reasons you can instead start in London."

The trip will have a communist history theme, starting with a visit to Karl Marx's grave in Highgate Cemetery in London, and will also visit Lenin's Mausoleum and Stalin's grave in Moscow.

It will take in the Ural Mountains and the Great Wall of China while passing along the route of the Trans-Siberian Railway.

While in Beijing travellers will get a tour to the Great Wall and Forbidden City, as well as a visit to Chairman Mao's Mausoleum.

They will spend four nights in North Korea and will see the sights in Pyongyang, visiting the Demilitarised zone (DMZ) at the border with South Korea, as well as travelling over to Mount Myohyang before taking the overnight train back to Beijing from Chinese border city Dandong. …
