Mount Paektu

The DPRK’s 2,750m sacred Mount Paektu is the highest mountain on the Korean Peninsula and in Northeastern China, located in the far north of the country. The mountain is crowned with white snow all year round, hence the name. The mountaintop is celebrated for the panoramic view of Lake Chon, situated at the highest point in the world as a volcanic lake. It is highlighted by the sunrise, an unrivaled ecstasy to be found. It is the best mountain among the six celebrated mountains of Korea with magnificent 216 peaks, mysterious climate, alpine faunal and floral resources. It is where Kim Il Sung waged guerilla warfare against the Japanese to liberate Korea, and also reportedly the birthplace of Kim Jong Il.

The mountain has a large crater lake on its top, which makes a trip to Mount Peaktu really unforgettable. The view from the top is simply beathtaking and amazing. But it is not only the very beautiful landscape that makes the mountain so attractive, it’s also Mount Peaktu’s cultural and mythological significance. Mount Paektu has been worshipped by Koreans and Manchu people throughout history as their cultural birth place and their ancestral origin.

It has becoming a desirable site of every visitor to this country. Therefore, you haven’t really experienced North Korea if you haven’t visited Mount Paektu.
