Chongun Rock 천군바위

Chongun Rock

The Yalu River (압록강 Amnok River in Korean) cuts through North Korea and China, crisscrossing the border. Along this river at GPS 41°51’54.215″ N 128°6’12.018″ E in Ryanggang Province, you will find a spectacular rock formation known as Chongun Rock. The formation sits mostly on the Chinese side of the border so the best view of it is actually on the North Korean side. Tourists visiting Samjiyon County would often stop by this location to grab photos.

I captured the 360 panorama using a Sigma 8mm f/3.5 mounted on a Nikon D810 with a wireless remote trigger to prevent camera shake. The Panoramic head was a Nodal Ninja R series. The balding guy in the photo was my North Korean guide.
