Visited the Mt Kumgang 30 August. This park is stunningly beautiful with its mountain, forests, river and spectacular waterfall. This is a must for travellers to North Korea.

We have the privilege of going to Kumgang San in Oct 2007, must have been a period of friendliness between the two Korea's. I believe it is currently inaccessible to outsiders. We were part of a 29 bus convoy. The interesting part was that I was the only westerner in the group. Thank goodness my wife(A South Korean) could translate for me. There was lots of rules about the trip, what to take, how to act etc. Once in the tourist village there were plenty of freedoms. Most of the staff appeared to be military or ex-military but were exceptionally friendly. The scenery was spectacular, pristine and almost untouched. We had some great hikes to some stunning lookouts. (Careful what you photograph as you are being watched - best to ask you tour assistant if in doubt). The cultural centre puts on some great shows and displays of North Korean talent. There is a seafood restaurant near the floating hotel (Forgot the name) that is a not to be missed. If you get the chance to go make sure you do, it is simply beautiful scenery.
