The Korean Peninsula
Rimyeongsu Waterfall

The Rimyeongsu Falls is situated about 40 kilometres in the south of the Changbai Shan (Baekdu).

Unlike typical waterfalls that descend from the upper stream, Rimyeongsu Falls is very unique: from the breast of a cliff, underground water gushes out to descend in several streams. Comprised of underground water and with a height of 6 metres, the falls don’t freeze even in the midst of the coldest winter, presenting a mystical view, together with pure white frost all around.
