The hills of Mt Myoyang are steep rugged rocks and if we wander from the path it’s wilderness all around us. Deep ravines cut into huge elephant type rock formations we cross the deep ravines on small swing bridges.

The Hyangsan hotel is nearby

The Hyangsan, a 15-storey hotel with a fake waterfall and plastic deer in the lobby is for tourists and special guests who visit the gift shrine-temple-like warehouses of KIM IL SUNG and his son KIM YONG IL. On the top floor, it has a revolving restaurant, a North Korean hotel tradition.
