The highest point is Noranbong. Most of the county's land is mountainous, but the southeast region is flat. The chief river is the Kumjin River. In the winter, its climate is continental and the weather is bitterly cold; however, the influence of the Rangrim Mountains makes Chongpyong's climate milder than that of the Yellow Sea coast.
Agriculture and fishery
Rice is cultivated on the level ground of the southeast, where the soil is fertile. Small amounts of other farming and orcharding also take place. Due to the county's coastal location, fishing is also practised.
Mining is a minor component of the local economy.
