There wouldn't be many people familiar with the back country of North Korea, but New Zealander Roger Shepherd is one of them.

He has been visiting the Baekdu Daegan mountain range in North and South Korea for years and now has been granted an exclusive right to lead expeditions hiking and camping out in the Paektu-san highlands adjacent to Korea's most sacred mountain in the north of the country.

He has a company called Hike Korea

Roger who lives in Gurye, Jiri-san South Korea tells us more.
