Living Monument-Isonnam Falls

The Isonnam Falls is located in Chonthae Valley, Mt Myohyang, the greatest spectacle of Korea.
The waterfall has been called Hyongje Falls for a long time because it is two branches apart like good brothers.
In May Juche 70 (1981), Chairman Kim Jong Il visited Chonthae Valley to confirm the route of the mountain climbing the waterfall and said that it can be called the Isonnam Falls.
From that time, the Hyongje Falls was called the Isonnam Falls.
The two watercourses are falling like a strong match with each other. The waterfall is beautiful and curious, adding beauty to the natural scenery of the area and serves as a recreation ground for the people.
