home pictures from North Korea


Myohyangsan mountains are among the most famous ones in North Korea, and offer many hiking opportunities. A large buddhist temple has been built nearby, as well as the two huge palaces of the gifts to Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il. The dozens of roomes of these Palaces contain the gifts offered by the "Foreign Friends" to the two leaders. It is compulsory to bow before the replica of Kim Il Sung in the last room.
