The Monggumpho Elephant Rock is a natural monument at the seaside in Ryongyon County, South Hwanghae Province of Korea. The facade of the rock resembles an elephant dropping its trunk into seawater to drink.
The rock has the shape of elephant through a long geological age. It is about 15 metres high and 10 metres long and the part of the “trunk” is nearly 3 metres round. The Elephant Rock is of great scientific and educational importance as it gives an intuitive understanding of the crustal rhythmic movement, weathering and abrasion.
The singular Monggumpho Elephant Rock is in harmony with the seaside cliff and the clean and blue sea, adding to the beauty of Monggumpho, a scenic spot in the West Sea of Korea.
