Jilin

Jilin is located in the northeast ofChinaand together with several provinces it makes up the region formerly known as Manchuria. Despite the winter cold, people come to this area for the Ice Lantern Festival and the winter sports. But Jilin has also many natural and historical attractions to entertain its residents and visitors. 
The maybe most famous site is the Changbaishan (Ever-whiteMountain). The mountain itself is a nature preserve that has tigers, deer, black bears, leopards and other wildlife in its original, undisturbed forests. On the very top of the mountain is Tianchi (HeavenlyLake), a vast volcanic crater lake set at an elevation of2,194mand ripe with its own set of colorful myths. 
The resorts of Songhua Hu Qingshan and Beidahu also offerChina’s premiere sku destinations and are only several hour drive from the provincial capital.


Chang Baishan

Located in the counties of Antu, Wusong and Changbai in southern Jilin Province, Changbaishan is one of China's nature preservation zones, covering an area of over 200,000 hectares, extending 78.5 kilometers north to south, and 53.3 kilometers west to east. It has a wholesome natural environment and ecosystem with world famous precious animals like Northeast Tigers, sikas, sables etc. It's China's typical comprehensive nature existence of world importance.

The Crater Lake: It nestles on Baitoushan (The White-Head Mountain), the main peak of the Changbaishan and is also a border lake between China and Korea. Surrounded by 16 exotic peaks, the lake is the crater of a volcano, filled with blue waters, known as "The Heavenly Lake". The basin-shaped lake, 2155 meters above sea level, and 313 meters deep at maximum, encompasses an area of 9.2 square kilometers. It's a typical high mountain lake. The lake waters keep flowing out, without causing apparent change in its water level. The two white rivers of the upper reaches of the secondSonghuaRiveroriginate here. The inner side of the lake bank is craggy cliffs formed by rough-surface rocks and white pumice stones, which make theLakeresemble a marble bowl carved with uncanny workmanship. The surface of theLakeis smooth as a mirror, with the reflections of grotesque cliffs upon it in numerous exotic shapes.

The Waterfall of Changbaishan: The water of theHeavenly Lake finds its way out through an opening in the northern bank and at a vertical cliff, 1250 meters away, drops 68 meters down with loud rumbles. The Changbai Waterfall hangs in the air like a white ribbon.

The Hot Springsof Changbaishan: At the north side of theWhite-HeadMountain, there is a group ofhot springs coverings an area of over one thousand square meters. Two white rivers wind their ways among thehot springs. The right banks where the mouths of springs concentrate are shrouded in hot misty air all the year round. The springs vary in temperature, with the highest reaching 82 degree Celsius. The hot waters contain hydrogen sulphide and have high medical value.


The Primeval Forests

The vast sea of forests appears mysterious and bizarre. No old sky-piercing trees have ever been felled. Natural-grown upside down trees are covered with moth, and young trees shoot just from the old rotten roots.
