It is traversed by the Hamgyŏng and Palbong ranges. The highest point is Chailbong. There are also lowland plains, where the temperatures are quite different from the mountains. The chief streams are the Sangch'ŏn and Pujŏn Rivers.
Agriculture dominates the local economy. In the mountain regions, the crops include oats, potatoes, millet, and barnyard millet. In the fertile areas in the south, rice is also grown. Lumbering and hydropower are also part of the local economy; relatively little mining takes place.
Ryu Kyong-su Tank Factory is located in the area.
