"Thaw has begun in Mt. Paektu, the holy mountain of revolution"

It's spring in the People's Democratic Republic of Korea--or is that the Democratic People's Republic of Korea? Anyway, it's spring there.
Thaw has begun in Mt. Paektu, the holy mountain of revolution associated with the immortal feats of the peerlessly great persons and the soul of the revolutionary forerunners, presenting a spectacular view.
They're serious about that mountain. Put the word "Paektu" in the "Search Blog" window of this blog if you doubt it.
According to data available at the Paektusan Meteorological Observatory, the snow more than 80 centimeters thick began to melt on April 4, reducing it to 46 centimeters on the ninth.

Fascinating is the scene of Rhododendron spreading its green leaves in Mt. Paektu where spring has come half a month earlier than last year.

When the sun rises, snow rolls down in an avalanche from the Janggun, Hyangdo, Haebal and other peaks and myriad-shaped cliffs, adding to the scenic wonders of the mountain.

The surroundings of the hot spring of Lake Chon are veiled in water mist and spring water is melting the coat of ice covering the shore of the lake.
Global warming? Even on the holy mountain of revolution?
