The Songam Cave with the total length of 2160 metres is located on the borders of Sonam-dong in Kaechon and Songam-dong in Anju in South Phyongan Province, and ranks in the famous underground scenic beauty in Korea.

As a natural cave with stalactites and stalagmites in various sizes and shapes, all formed in the centuries-old process of the dolomite being dissolved or eroded by underground water, it is an ensemble of fabulous scenes.

The cave is divided in 16 sections, including Pomuldong, Paekhwadong, Solgyongdong and Ryonggungdong. They are made up of more than 70 scenic spots, such as 6-metre Tansim Falls, Pidanphokpho Rock, and Janggom Rock which is a stalactite 4.2 metres high and 1.9 tons heavy.

Conspicuous is Jangsudong with Jangsu Pool and the lotus-shaped stone flower on it.

The Songam Cave that is laid out splendidly as a pleasure resort is reverberating with merry laughter of the people, who say they feel ten years younger.
