  |   World News

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has climbed the country's highest mountain on horseback, according to state-run media.

A series of photos released by KCNA show Mr Kim astride a white horse on a snow-covered Mount Paektu.

This is not the first time he has scaled the 2,750-metre peak.

The mountain holds a special place in the country's identity - and is said to be the birthplace of former leader Kim Jong-il, the father of Kim Jong-un.

"His march on horseback in Mt Paektu is a great event of weighty importance in the history of the Korean revolution," said a KCNA report released on Wednesday.

"Sitting on the horseback atop Mt Paektu, [he] recollected with deep emotion the road of arduous struggle he covered for the great cause of building the most powerful country, with faith and will as firm as Mt Paektu."
