Five years ago I climbed to the summit of Changbaishan from North Korea, where it is known as Mt Paektu. I shared across the gorgeous lake and decided that one day I would come back to this place from the opposite direction and climb the summit from the Chinese side. As other reviews have said, there are multiple entrances from... More

Climbing the endless stairs to the top of ChangBai mountain, felt like reaching the clouds... I can't really advise on how I've got there since my university has arranged it for all its foreign students, but what i know is that it was worth every penny, second, and effort. I'm not sure how the place looks in other seasons because... More

There are two paths to Changbaishan: from the west, and from the north (east and southern entrances are from the North Korea side, though I heard that recently a southern line has been developed from the China side as well). If you want an overlooking view of Tianchi, take the north entrance. This is subject to weather conditions, as often... More

Changbaishan tianchi is a famous spot for natural scenery. A great place to visit. But seeing the view depends on luck in winter and spring. Because it's usually foggy and cloudy. With a bit of luck then you can see the lake without anything blocking. When I was there in May the lake is still frozen. Looking forward to revisit... More

There are 3 ways to reach the lake in the Changbai Mountain: west line, north line and south line. North line provide a breathtaking buggies to the top of the mountain, west line requires some good physical strength, cause you should climb 1442 steps to reach the top. The south line is more original, it is the latest developed route... More

There are two “TianChi 天池” in China, one in Xinjiang (Tianshan Tianchi 天山天池) at the West and the other on top of Changbai Mountain at the East (Changbaishan Tianchi 长白山天池). The Changbaishan Tianchi is located at the China Eastern border with North Korea. It’s a dormant volcano lake – in the amazingly beautiful caldera on Changbai Mountain. Locals also believe... More
