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.

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.

North Korea Gold 북한의 금

North Korean Gold 북한의 금

While traveling across the countryside, I was able to observe locals panning for gold in one of the rivers. They were swirling pans and using sluice boxes to prospect for the precious metal. That piqued my interest and the following year, I finally got to see a North Korean gold bullion coin minted from the Central Bank of the DPRK.

An increasing number of such dams now have hydroelectric generators installed that produce sufficient electricity for neighboring towns throughout spring to autumn.
