Foreign tourists hike on North Korea’s Mount Paektu volcano for the first time

Mount Paektu, a huge volcano that sits on the border between China and North Korea, saw its first group of foreign visitors last week. Two Australians, two Norwegians and one New Zealander spent six days and five nights hiking around the remote area near the mountain. Hike organiser Roger Shepherd said he hopes to open up a side of North Korea rarely seen by outsiders.
