As an inland area in the northern part of Korea, it comprises the revolutionary battle sites, revolutionary sites and scenic spots in Ryanggang Province with Mt. Paektu, the highest mountain in Korea, as its axis. The name of the province was derived from the fact that it lies at the juncture of the Amnok and Tuman rivers which find their way to the east and west seas, with Mt. Paektu as their watershed. As a mountainous area, the province is situated high above the sea.

Mt. Paektu area is a historic place where President Kim Il Sung commanded the sacred struggle against the Japanese imperialists to liberate Korea from their military rule. So preserved there, are many revolutionary battle sites and revolutionary sites. In the area is the Paektusan Secret Camp where Chairman Kim Jong Il was born.
