The Changbai Mountain range is home to beautiful scenery and natural forest oxygen bar, which give a person a kind of relaxed and happy yearning. The mountain slopes are divided into different ranges which result in differing flora and fauna, which change with the seasons....More

We were driven to the foothills of the mountain. From there we boarded a coach that took us further up to another station. Here we changed transport mode, to a smaller van, that brought us to the summit. There were plenty of hairpin bends along...More

Exciting location! It is worth to climb the (interminable!) stairs and go to the top. The wonderful panorama will compensate for all efforts. Also go into the very nice forest at the basis of the mountain and enjoy nature!

We were lucky enough to hike from both sides when there was not any cloud cover and had spectacular views. I would definitely take the opportunity to see this spectacular natural attraction if you are in the area.

It's really beautiful and stunning. I visited only the north slope because I didn't know that a ticket can use for two day for both slope, North and West. If I have a chance to come here again, I won't miss the west slope for...More

North slope: First you take a bus to a interchange "station" from where you take buses to other places. To go to Heavenly lake (Tianchi) you need to get an extra ticket (near where the buses stop, 80¥) and pass through a gate on the...More

Please Guide me from Beijing to Changbai Mountain (1 Reply)
Hi guys, I'm a Malaysian. I'm planning to travel to Beijing with another 2 friends. I'm interested in going to Changbai Mountain. But there is very few information on how to get to the place. As what I know, there are train from Beijing to Changcun, then I'm stuck to proceed from Changchun to Changbai. What is the cheapest or available way to get to the mountain. Is one day good enough at the place and come back to changchun again. Please advise. Regards, Bala

"Very little", not "very few". The train station for Changbaishan is Baihe, not Changchun. There're no direct trains, I would recommend changing trains at either Shenyang or Jilin. These two are the origin of trains going to Baihe: N197 (0910--2312, 14h02min) from Shenyang and N188/N189 (1247--0540, 16h53min) from Jilin.
