Mount Paektu area is imprinted with footmarks of anti-japanese guerillas who fought for the independence and freedom of Korea under the leadership of President Kim Il Sung.
The natural environment of Mount Paektu is very unique. Chonji, one of the crater lakes situated in the highest place of the world, and pristine forest around Mt. Paektu area had created an ecosystem peculiar in this region.
Samjiyon city, in the North Eastern part of Ryanggang province, DPRK, has completely changed its appearance in recent days as a model of the mountainous civilized town and an ideal local city under the wise leadership of His Excellency Kim Jong Un.
