The Komdok area in the northern part of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea is undergoing a remarkable transformation into a picturesque mountainous and mining town.

Situated north of Tanchon City in South Hamgyong Province, the region was originally named Komidok (spider tableland) due to the distinctive appearance of lead and zinc ore deposits resembling a spider. Over time, it was later renamed Komdok.

In September 2020, the Komdok area faced significant damage from an unexpected typhoon. In response, the government swiftly mobilized a robust task force for reconstruction.

Within less than a year from the commencement of construction, numerous single, low, multi-storey, high-rise apartment buildings, and terraced houses have been erected along the deep valleys. Local residents have already relocated to these new homes.

Throughout this year, house-moving ceremonies have been held one after another in various parts of the area, bringing joy and excitement to the mining town. The rapid development reflects a successful initiative to enhance the living conditions and overall appeal of the Komdok region.
