Mt. Kumgang

Here is an article on Mt. Kumgang (Diamond Mountain) in North Korea that was mentioned in class a few weeks back. This is the mountain where South Koreans can come and hike. Wednesday marked the 1 millionth South Korean visitor to the mountain. It looks like Mt. Kumgang is set to become a huge resort town now, where tourists will be allowed to camp out and cook food. This is an example of North Koreans and South Koreans working together to promote cultural awareness. It's always good to remember some of the inter-Korean efforts that are going on admist the distrust and uncertainty the nuclear issue brings.
