North Korea has a luxury ski resort

North Korea has opened a luxury ski resort in early 2014. The Masikryong Ski Resort was built at the summit of the 1,360-metre Taehwa Peak, some 20 kilometres outside Wonsan City in Kangwon Province.

The Masikryong (literally “horse-resting pass”) project was constructed in just ten months. And it got some help from China to bypass the international sanction to get the much-needed infrastructures to complete the ski ground.
