The Changbaishan Nature Reserve was enlisted as a UNESCO Nature Reserve in 1979 and is the highest mountain in the North of China. The mountain covers an area of over 2,000 square meters and has an impressive forest and wildlife environment.
Changbai Mountain is now an inactive volcano and is estimated to have last erupted several hundred years ago. Gradually water filled the volcanic opening and the heavenly lake was formed. Due to the geography, Changbai Mountain is always surrounded by white clouds, looking like a precious jade on the heaven. Climate is also an astonishing scene here because you may find it raining hard on the east and shining warmly on the west.
Tianchi has been known for its magnificent and vast view but it is not easy to be lucky enough for tourists to see it once because of its misty weather. Tourists then have to choose the right seasons to see the wonderful scenery. What attracts tourists more is not only the landscape, but also the legendary myth of the monster.
