Canyon highlights of the boardwalk
Sep 2019 • Couples
One of the attractions of Changbaishan’s west slope is a nature reserve boardwalk along the rim of Changbai Canyon in Songjiang. The walk takes about 40-45 minutes to complete and offers spectacular views down the 100 metre deep canyon to the river. The walk includes a couple of Indiana Jones-style swaying bridges (not quite as hairy a crossing as in the movies). The highlight of the canyon for me was the many, intriguing and unusual rock formations to be seen. The canyon doesn’t pull in the crowds that Heaven Lake and the mountain waterfalls do, but that lack of visitors made the boardwalk a more enjoyable jaunt.

Beautiful

A group of us went up the mountain. About 1500 steps up and at this time of year, it was beautiful and not too cold. A light jacket is sufficient

Tolles Panorama und viel Natur
Jul 2019 • Couples
Nice Road Trip from Shenyang to Chnagbai Mountain.
5 Hours drive.
It´s a must see place if you are near by. Two to three days is enought to discover
the area. To the mountian you drive with the Bus and then have to
take the stairs ( 1400 ) up to see the Lake.

Splendid & pristine volcanic lake surrounded by beautiful mountains
Aug 2018 • Friends
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. Folklore has it that there is a monster at Tianchi (aka, Heavenly Lake). Changbai Mountain area is famous for its wild, organic ginseng.

Changbai San

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 the way, but nothing to be afraid of. Just hang on tight, onto whatever handles you can find inside the van.

From the drop off point, there are routes A and B to climb to get to the sides of the crater lake known as Tianchi/Heavenly Lake.

We were blessed with good weather & clear skies, hence we saw the lake, after much jostling with swarms of tourists.

It is a rather small crater lake that pales against other lakes in China.

Wonderful Place!
Sep 2018 • Business
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!

perfect view
Sep 2018 • Business
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.

Best experience and worth for visiting.
Jul 2018 • Friends
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 sure.

North and West slope
Jun 2018 • Solo
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 other side of the parking lot (I thought it was an entrance to a deer enclosure). There you take small buses to Tianchi - it's a fun ride, as the drivers take the turns super fast! The hike uphill is very easy and short and there are plenty of people, but if you're lucky the view is pretty great. Unfortunately the path closer to North Korea is closed. Then you can go to a waterfall, heavenly lake (same bus, two stops), and a "dell forest" - which is the longest hike in the area (it's said it takes 80 minutes, but it's very easy to walk faster, for me it was about 50).
Overall: surprisingly pricey (210¥+80 for Tianchi), great sights, although I'd prefer more actual hiking than just the bus rides (although I have to give it to them - the places are super far away from one another)

West slope: again pricey (210¥) but no additional costs. Soon after I got onto the bus to the beginning of the trail, I lost coverage - so remember to bring cash as wechat money will not suffice!
Now for the trail... 1442 stairs with a few rest stops on the way (you can pay to be carried in a sedan chair!) and the view of the way is unobstructed and absolutely breathtaking. I was also lucky as it rained in the morning and stopped right when I started the hike - and when I was going downhill it got cloudy, but thanks to the bad weather there were just few people. After Tianchi lake you can go to a canyon, which is very pretty (although not very special), it's also a pleasant, not strenuous hike. And there are chipmunks!

If you have only one day I'd say west slope is the better option.

What's more: if you're unprepared, you can rent warm coats. It gets surprisingly cold - I went mid-June and although a fleece jacket was enough, I was sometimes a bit chilly, especially at the top. Also, the weather changes in a matter of minutes, so have a raincoat!
There are some stands with food - mostly corn, eggs, and instant noodles, so it's probably a good idea to pack some snacks.
Also, people everywhere in the area are super friendly, but they do not speak English (and why would they - during the two days there I met only Chinese and Koreans), so prepare your google translate :)

Great 2 Day Activity
Jan 2017 • Friends
I visited the park across two days from two of their access points.
Walked up one side though the pass was closed due to weather, was still worth the trip.
The second day took their bus to up the lake lookout and an awesome snowmobile ride up to another station. There was a 1km up hill walk from there which was a little hectic but really made the adventure. The track was closed for much of the day only opening towards the end of the day due to weather, some of the track was walkable while other parts you could just walk next to it and see every so often where the actual path was, was a great walk :-) easily -40c + wind. Not something you'd do if you had trouble with the cold or slippery slopes but was a great experience.
No one spoke English which made it all the more adventure. lol
