Among celebrated mountains in Pyongyang is Mt Ryongak situated in Mangyongdae District.
The name of Mt Ryongak is derived from the shape of its summit which looks like a dragon about to soar into the air.
Climbers cannot repress their admiration for rocks and cliffs of fantastic shape in the mountain and its beautiful geographical features. Halfway up the mountain is a crystal-clear spring gushing out from a crevice of a rock. The mountain is home to hundreds of species of plants including such living monuments as Ryongaksan zelkova.
Tae Peak of the mountain commands a bird’s eye view of Pyongyang and the countryside around the city.
The mountain also boasts such historical sites as the Pobun Hermitage and Ryonggok Confucian School.
