Mt. Paektu is in Samjiyon City of Ryanggang Province.
The great leader Kim Jong Il initiated the study tour to the revolutionary battle sites in the area of Mt. Paektu in June Juche 45 (1956) when he was 14 years old.
Staying overnight in a log cabin of the forestry workers’ village in Samjiyon, he sat face to face with the villagers and talked to them till late at night.
The Samjiyon area will be turned into a large open-air revolution museum in the future. Then, a wonderful city will be built here instead of this kind of log cabin. I promise you….
True to the promise he made in his teens, Kim Jong Il gave field guidance to Ryanggang Province tens of times in his lifetime.
Today Samjiyon City has been built into a modern mountain city called number one in the DPRK.
For the city construction the respected Kim Jong Un examined more than 8,800 miniatures and called at the construction site on several occasions for guidance.
Thanks to his devotion for the people, the inauguration of the completely changed township area of the then Samjiyon County was declared to the whole world in December Juche 108 (2019).
People are enjoying a happy life in the Paektu Plateau where the desire and ideal of Kim Jong Il have come true.
