About this place

Changbai Mountain is situated in Antu County of Yanbian Korean Autonomous Prefecture in northeast China, bordering the Democratic People's Republic of Korea in the south.
As a dormant volcano, Changbai Mountain boasts rare animals, marvelous lakes, amazing hot springs, and forests that stretch to the horizon.
There is splendid scenery during the four seasons, but it is especially beautiful in winter.

The most beautiful part of Changbai Mountain is undoubtedly Tianchi, or Heavenly Lake.
The lake was formed in the crater of Changbai Mountain, and it is the source of the Songhua, Tumen and Yalu Rivers.
Changbai Mountain is also the cradle of Manchu, Korean and Han nationalities.

With clouds everywhere, Heavenly Lake is like a jade in the sky.
You can find a very interesting phenomenon while walking along the Heavenly Lake.

On many occasions it is common for sunshine and rain to occur at the same time. It may rain very hard one minute, but you may soon find the sun shining warmly the next minute. Sometimes, you can even watch it rain in the west and shine in the east.

Besides the wonderful scenery and astonishing climate, many witnesses have claimed that there are monsters in the lake! Some witnesses even took photos as proof, but there is still no conclusive evidence.

Changbai MountainDuring the peak seasons, namely June through September, hundreds of flowers blossom on the Southern and Western slopes. It is very cool in Changbai Mountain, so it's an ideal place for escaping from the summer heat. But it is also very rainy in July and August, and visitors cannot watch the Heavenly Lake clearly at that time. The best time to visit Changbai Mountain is September. Generally, it snows from October. The best time to view snow and to ski is from November to March. Ice and snow begin to thaw from April, but visitors can still find snow even in May.
