Most of the county is mountainous. Yodok is traversed by the Rangrim and Puktaebong ranges. The chief river is the Ryonghung. The highest point is Raganbong. Roughly 90% of the county's area is forestland.
Due to the rugged terrain, agriculture is nearly impossible. However, a few farms are tucked into the mountains, harvesting maize, soybeans, millet, wheat and barley.
Also due to the mountains, Yodok is not connected to the rail grid. It is reachable only by road.
Yodok is the site of the Yodok concentration camp.
