Photography banned from Pyongyang’s Juche Tower, Koryo Hotel blocks window view

View towards North Korean capital's Forbidden City also now blocked at Koryo Hotel

Visitors have been banned from taking photographs at the top of the Juche Tower in Pyongyang, a recently returning tourist told NK News on Thursday, while windows at the iconic Koryo Hotel are being obscured in some parts of the building.

The new Juche Tower rule, which was reportedly introduced last week, was imposed without explanation by authorities on local tour groups, the visitor said.
