It is an elaborate and solid hexagonal pillar with very clear cleats and is greyish green.

It is 140 metres round at the bottom, 100 metres round at the height of 25 metres and 21 metres round at the top.

Its circumference is comparatively round, and the east side is precipitous, and the north and west sides are sloping. Tall trees and shrubs grow on the cliffs and slopes.

It was designated as a natural monument of the DPRK as it is of great significance in studying volcanic activities and crustal movements and adds more beauty to the local landscape.
