Mt Paektu, which straddles the borders of North Korea and China, is responsible for one of the most catastrophic eruptions in human history, and scientists fear it could blow again.

Officials in China have closed a national park near to the volcano to prevent the public approaching Mt Paektu due to fears it could erupt at any moment.

Nuclear tests from the rogue nation of North Korea have triggered small tremors in the 70-square-mile Changbaishan National Nature Reserve – next to the volcano – prompting fears it could blow which led officials to close the park.

Chinese authorities said: “For the safety and convenience of travellers, we have temporarily closed the southern tourist zone of Changbai Mountain.

“Officials are thoroughly investigating the safety of the tourist area.

“The area will remain closed to the public until the potential risks disappear.”

Mount Paektu once underwent one of the most devastating eruptions in history in 946AD when it erupted so powerfully that it formed a five kilometre caldera at its summit and produced enough ash it even showered Japan – almost 680 miles (1,100km) away.
