Found in Sonha section are Jipson Peak of a shape of spearheads put together, Chaeha Peak shrouded in dense fog, beautiful waterfalls and pools, and rocks of fantastic forms.
In particular, the scenery of Tongsokdong in autumn is beyond expression. Tongsok(Swaying Rock), with a weight of scores of tons, sits on a big, broad rock.
It is well-known for its shape and the surrounding scenery.
Between the rocks of various colours, there grow many trees-maple, dogwood, ash, birch and oak. In the flowering season the area becomes a harmonious blend of bright colours-red, yellow and golden brown.
Near Ryonju Falls and Paeknyon Falls in Sonhadong is a rock which looks like a turtle drinking water. This is Kobuk (Turtle) Rock.
According to a legendary tale, a turtle became infatuated with the scenery and turned into a rock.
Here you can also see Chollima Rock looking just like the Chollima Statue in Pyongyang.
West of this rock is Kobukson (Turtle Ship) Rock.
This rock affords a fine view of the East Sea.
Famous in Palyonso section are Odan (Five-tiered) Falls and Ryongyon Falls in Ryongsindong. The former with a height of about 30m sends up thick clouds of spray, forming a beautiful rainbow on a bright day.
Go past Tungnyong Falls and Ryongsin Falls, and you can see a granite bridge, called Mujigae(Rainbow). A brook murmurs under the bridge, surrounded by pine, oak and maple trees.
On the opposite side of this bridge is a low-gradient waterfall, with a length of about 60m. For its unique shape, it attracts a large number of tourists.
An old tale goes that many visitors used to enjoy water slides here, with no one being hurt or drowned.
