It was cold on February 2nd, but at least Heaven Lake was not weathered in.

It was the dead of winter when we visited, but we lucked out and were able to at least see frozen over Heaven Lake. But, it was cold, windy and you were lucky to be able to stand... read more

This is a holy mountain for most Koreans who come up from South Korea, by passing North Korea to get to the mountain via China, which is split between China and North Korea. You can only go up and down the mountain on the China side. North Koreans will shoot you if you come on their side. Best trail is... More

It took 4 hrs from Changchun to get to the Changbaishan resort which you would assume was close to the mountain. But it took hours more and three different buses to get to the mountain. The crowds at the bus changes and at the mountain were insane, like Disneyland at peak times but worse. It made it very easy to... More

It was the dead of winter when we visited, but we lucked out and were able to at least see frozen over Heaven Lake. But, it was cold, windy and you were lucky to be able to stand outside for more than 10 - 15 minutes before heading to the warm-up shack/snack area. It was a fairly long bus ride... More

I had two days in Changbai in case the weather was bad for one day. I planned to visit the North area and south area. The weather was bad so I only got to see the north area, which has the famous large waterfall. The park entry system is complex, even with basic Chinese. You need multiple tickets, and there...

After being unable to reach the top of the mountain due to poor weather three days earlier, on our second attempt we were able to attempt the journey, so let's start at the beginning... You arrive at the base of the mountain (actually the edge of the National Park) at one of two locations. Both are very well appointed, but... More

Advantage: Mountain with excellent view. Tian Chi lake is so nice. It is formed due to the volcano campaign. U can never image that on this height, there still can be on lake like this, so peaceful and so pure. It gives u the 100% mental power when u finally see it after the long climbing. The tourist place is... More

If you are lucky to get good weather this is a nice view of a huge mountain lake. However you must ask yourself if you are willing to spend days to get there and spend 300 yuan for tickets to share the view with literally thousands of Chinese tourists. I didn't think it was worth it. I travelled from Harbin... More

The scenery of Changbai Mountain is fantastic. However, you need luck to see the Tianchi. When we arrived the top of the Tianchi, a blizzard struck. The whether was terrible and nothing we could see.
