This is a truly excellent documentary on Mount Paektu, one of the largest and most dangerous volcanoes on earth.
And yet, for the longest time, nobody could explain where it came from or why it exists.
This documentary discusses why this volcano is so unusual and how the geological mystery surrounding it could eventually be solved.
The only ‘bad’ comment concerns the title. It indeed doesn’t say that Mount Paektu is not just in China but also sits in North Korea:
“Is it possible to edit the title to China’s/Korea’s largest volcano? Many Koreans consider Mount Paektu sacred as it’s considered the birth place of the Korean Nation (it’s even mentioned in the South National Anthem). Koreans may feel offended having their ownership of the mountain excluded in the video title. Great video though. And very informative.“
Maybe it was omitted on purpose (because ‘Youtube’ is watching you)!?!
It is to note that international officials feared more tests at the Punggye-ri site could cause Mount Paektu to errupt.
And that the active volcano is currently recharging its two huge magma chambers.
I haven’t seen such in-depth and up to date documentary video in a very long time. Not like the usual Hollywood-like stuff with more cheap effects than info.
