Mount Kumgang or the Kumgang Mountains are a mountain/mountain range, with a 1,638-metre-high Birobong peak, in Kangwon-do, North Korea. It is about 50 kilometers from the South Korean city of Sokcho in Gangwon-do and one of the best – known mountains in communist North Korea.

According to Bae Kook-hwan , CEO of Hyundai Asan, his company set up to deal with inter-Korean businesses.

Kopok-hwan was speaking Saturday after visiting the North Korean destination for two days. He  said the facilities at Geumgangsan are fairly decent but since they’ve been closed for more than a decade, they’d need repairs before tours could resume.

The tour program at Geumgangsan was suspended in 2008 after a South Korean tourist was shot dead near the resort.
