Paegaebong Hotel (Pegaebong Hotel) is the only hotel in Mt. Paekdu area. It is a decent option with modern rooms and hot running water in its newest wing. The hotel is an excellent base for the surrounding exploration and hiking.
Pegaebong Hotel is located outside the resort town of Samjiyon. Hotel’s rooms are basic but clean and cosy. All the necessary facilities are available, ensuring a comfortable stay for you. Here you encounter experiences of life outside Pyongyang: Hot water would only be available for one thirty minute time slot in the evening and one thirty minute slot in the morning.
There are some interesting spots to visit around the hotel including Rimyongsu Waterfalls. This scenic waterfall does not freeze over during the bitter winter months. The information sign there indicated that when Kim Il Sung observed this he referred the matter to his top scientists, who discovered that the reason for the phenomenon was the water was coming from underground. Another stop is a quick visit to a lookout that showed off the beautiful canyon of the Yalu River (Amnok River in Korean). This river forms the boundary between Korea and China so we were able to see Chinese territory directory from this vantage point.
