North Korea Geography, Climate, and Weather

The Democratic People's Republic of Korea shares borders in the north with China, in the east with the Sea of Japan, in the west with the Yellow Sea and in the south with the demilitarised zone (separating it from the Republic of Korea).
Most of the land consists of hills and low mountains and only a small area is cultivable. Intensive water and soil conservation programmes, including land reclamation from the sea, are given high priority.
The eastern coast is rocky and steep with mountains rising from the water and this area contains most of the river waterways.

Korea has a temperate climate with distinct seasonal changes. Early Spring is sunny but chilly so bring warm coats and under clothes. In late Spring, light clothing in the day and warm clothing at night is needed.
Summer (June to August) is warm in the day but at night, a light raincoat will do. Autumn has marked variations between day and night so be prepared. Winter (December to February) has clear skies, not much snow but is biting cold.
