A National Treasure No. 203, the white-naped crane, “The Guest of October,” is flapping its wings beautifully in the Cheorwon plain, Cheorwon-gun, which is a civilian-passage-restriction-line area adjacent to the truce line. White-naped cranes inhabit in Siberia, Mongol and the northeastern part of China and fly to the southern Korean Peninsula, Japan and the southeast part of China to spend the winter. It is estimated that about 5,000 of them exits throughout the world, and about 400 of them were observed in the civilian-passage-restriction-line area this day.
