Grand Jangbaek Waterfall on Mt. Baekdu
Jangbaek Waterfall () is the largest waterfall among some 60 waterfalls on Mt. Baekdu or Baekdusan (ߣ), the holy mountain of Korean people.

The 68-meter grand waterfall is most dramatic during summer time when snow melts on the Korea's highest mountain with 2,750 meters above sea level. The mountain borders China, who claims nearly half of it. The Chinese call the mountain "Changbai Mountains (ߣ).

Jangbaek Waterfall is also called "Flying Dragon Waterfall" for its shape when water falls from the cliffs.

The great waterfalls come from Lake Cheonji () or literally Heaven Lake, a large crater lake on top of the Baekdu Mountain, the highest mountain on the Korean Peninsula and in Northeast China as well.

Lake Cheonji is usually frozen over until late June or July. Flow over the waterfall is reduced in winter months but it never completely freezes over since the lake drains from depth below the ice and the water is geothermally heated beneath year-round.

Baekdusan literally means "white-headed mountain." Manchurians call it "Golmin Šanggiyan Alin," meaning "perpetually white mountain."
