Chongun Rock 천군바위

Chongun Rock 천군바위

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.

압록강은 북한과 중국의 국경 사이를 가르며 흐른다. 압록강을 따라 양강도(GPS 41°51’54.215″ N 128°6’12.018″ E )에 이르면 천군바위라고 부르는 장대한 암석층을 볼수 있다. 이 암석층이 주로 국경에서 중국쪽으로 펼쳐져 있기 때문에, 북한 측에서 바라볼 때 가장 좋은 풍경을 제공한다.

삼지연을 관광한 후에 들러서 많이들 사진을 찍는 곳이다.

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.
