Mt. Ryongak is one of the celebrated mountains in Pyongyang. It is standing in Mangyongdae District of the capital Pyongyang. It is 292 metres above the sea level.  Mt. Ryongak consists of tens of exquisite peaks and gorges. From olden times it was famous as a place with a fine outlook because it can overlook the beautiful Pyongyang.  Mt. Ryongak was named so, as its peak looks queer like a dragon ready to fly up into the sky.  The mountain is steep with deep gorges in all directions and a lot of protrusive rocks on its peak. Especially, a sheer cliff is seen on the northeastern slope.  Those climbing Mt. Ryongak express their admiration at its queer rocks, cliffs and graceful features.  Found on the mountainside is a crystal-clear spring water gushing out of the cracks of rocks in all seasons.    Mt. Ryongak presents a unique view in every season; all kinds of flowers bloom in spring and the whole mountain is covered with leaves all red and yellow in autumn.                     Hundreds of species of plants are growing on Mt. Ryongak including the Ryongaksan Zelkova, a living monument, under special protection.  There are also the historic Pobun Hermitage and Ryonggok School.  A Children's Union Camp has been built at the foot of the scenic mountain.  A sightseeing path has been paved well up to the crest of the mountain and all conditions provided for the working people to relax themselves. Mt. Ryongak serves as a cultural recreation resort of the people.
