The Podok Hermitage is a mountain hermitage in Naegang-ri, Kumgang-gun, North Korea. First built during the Koguryo period, it was rebuilt in 1675. The one room building is supported by a single copper pole. The structure is in the middle of a 20-metre-high cliff, leaning against the rock in front of the Podok Grotto. 
Since the hermitage's construction in 627, solitary Buddhist monks lived in the structure, looking down at the valley through a hole in the floor.
