N. Korea promotes tourism to Geumgang-san Mountain: Report

North Korea appears to be trying to revive
its tourism industry as a way of addressing the economic challenges it faces under the
sanctions. North Korean propaganda outlet DPRK Today
reported Monday… that the country is resuming tours for foreigners to its Geumgang-san Mountain
including the mountain’s scenic Haegeumgang River. It says the tours will start late this month
and run through the end of November… and that the four-day program includes hiking,
fishing and spa treatments. The North promoted a similar tour program
last April. Inter-Korean tour programs have been suspended
since a South Korean tourist was shot dead for allegedly trespassing in 2008.
