Pyongyang, June 30 (KCNA) — The Mt. Paektu area has changed beyond recognition in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea over the last five years.
The members of the national Party information workers’ shock brigade have spruced up the area as a good place to live in and a scenic place to suit the features of the socialist country as President Kim Il Sung had planned.
They have constructed or reconstructed over 1,490 dwelling houses for more than 5,080 families in towns in forests at the foot of Mt. Paektu.
The township of Samjiyon County, Ryanggang Province has turned into a picturesque town with the construction of dwelling houses of unique styles and parks befitting the forest zone and other colorful buildings.
More than 520 red and blue cosy houses for thousands of households have been built there. Each flat covering 75-80 square meters on an average is furnished with convenient living conditions.
Beautiful villages have come into being along Rimyongsu Stream and on the shore of Mubong Lake to go well with their fascinating scenes varying from season to season.
People have moved to the newly built dwellings in Phothae workers’ district, Pochon and other parts.
