This region takes it name from the Baekdu mountain range (also known as the Changbai Mountains) with spans both provinces as well as Manchu province of China. The area is highly mountainous with many peaks exceeding 2000 meters, the highest peak is Mount Baekdu which is as popular a tourist destination as they come in North Korea, and also what many Koreans consider their mythic origin. The region shares a long border with China, partly formed by the Yalu River and Tumen Rivers. While Chagang is rich in mineral resources, to the west Ryangang is one of the poorest provinces in an already poor nation, forming part of North Korea's very own Rust belt along with its southern neighbours.
