Most of the leader's previous visits to the mountain have been associated with important incidents. He paid a visit to the mountain in 2017 just after launching North Korea's biggest intercontinental ballistic missile. Earlier in 2013, he visited Paektu before executing his own uncle. People are speculating as to what is the major incident associated with this visit.
