Songam Cavern in DPRK

Pyongyang, September 3 (KCNA) — Songam Cavern is in the outskirts of Kaechon City, South Phyongan Province, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.

The natural cavern, discovered several years ago, displays superb view with stalagmites and flowers of all forms and figures which have been made from limestones dissolved and corroded through many a century.

There are more than 70 scenic spots in the cavern.

Seen in and around the cavern are rest places and service facilities as well as various animal sculptures.

Leader Kim Jong Il called at the cavern in March Juche 85 (1996) and April 2002. He named it Songam Cavern and said that it should be turned into a holiday resort.
