Yaksandongdae

Pyongyang, December 4 (KCNA) — Yaksandongdae (eastern hill with mineral spring) is a scenic wonder of antiquity situated in Nyongbyon county, North Phyongan Province. It is a precipitous rock mass of granite gneiss sprawling north-southward.


Its fantastic scenery will take your breath away.

The steep, queer Hakpyo cliff is overhanging the crystal-clear River Kuryong. The Tongdae cliff garbed in refreshing lush thickets. The Jeil peak, the roof of this area, towers to a height of 488 metres. The Hakkwiam waterfall cascades down, spraying into dazzling rainbow patterns.

In spring, all the cliff, rock crevices, valleys and castle sites are carpeted with blooming azaleas whose light-pink reflections add enticing touches to the River Kuryong.

The bank of the River Kuryong in this area is the foremost spot of azaleas in Korea.
