The Korean Peninsula is located in North-East Asia, bordered by the Amnok River (Yalu River) to the northwest, separating Korea from China, and the Duman River (Tumen River) to the northeast dividing Korea from both China and Russia. The country itself is flanked by the Yellow Sea to its west and the East Sea to the east.


There are several notable islands that surround the peninsula including Jeju-do, Ulleung-do and Dok-do (Liancourt Rocks).


The Korean peninsula is roughly 612 miles long and 105 miles wide at its narrowest point, which is roughly the size of England.


Mountains cover 70% of Korea, making it one of the most mountainous countries in the world. The lifting and folding of Korea’s granite and limestone base have created a breathtaking landscape of scenic hills and valleys.


The mountain range that stretches for the entire length of the eastern coast falls steeply into the East Sea, while along the southern and western coasts, the mountains descend gradually to the coastal plains that produce the bulk of Korea’s crops, especially rice.
