North Korea has long associated the mountain with their national identity and have previously made up other stories about the natural phenomenon.
This week the state’s leadership claimed that the winter weather disappeared as Kim Jong-un climbed the “mountain of revolution”.
The press release went on to say that the unexpected weather came about because the mountain wanted to “give a warm welcome” to Kim Jong-un and “show joy at the appearance of the peerlessly illustrious commander who controls the nature”.
In a quote from the report, Kim Jong-Un even bragged about the visibility on the mountain following his weather miracle.
He said: “The weather is so fine that we can see peaks on the shore of Lake Chon more clearly as if they are before our very eyes.”
The weather was said to be so nice that it was “rare to be seen even in spring”.
Mount Paektu is an important part of folk law for both North and South Koreans, with the nations considering the volcano and its caldera lake their spiritual home.
This is not the first time that bizarre stories about the mountain have been released by the DPRK.
However, Soviet records indicate he was actually born in Siberia in 1941.
Other tall tales taught to North Koreans include the sighting of a unicorn, former leader Kim Jong-il retiring from golf after his first attempt to play finished with 11 holes in one, and Kim Jong-un as a “fashion icon”.
The latest story comes as Pyongyang looks to build national pride across the country for a future war with the US.
Last month the Asian country bragged that they now had the ability to hit “all the US mainland”.
The spokesperson said: “As a responsible nuclear power and peace-loving state, the DPRK will make every possible effort to serve the noble purpose of defending peace and stability of the world.”
