The Hamgyong Mountains traverse the county. The highest point is Komdoksan. Chief streams include the Namdaechon and Pochonchon (보천천). It has a relatively mild climate for the province.
Industry dominate the local economy, although orcharding and dry-field farming also play a role. Local crops include millet, barley, wheat, soybeans, maize, and rice. Rice production is confined to the valleys. In addition, there are livestock and silkworm farms.
