    Changbai Mountain is a dormant volcano with rare animals, dense forests, and crystal-clear lakes. We will take a sightseeing bus to Heavenly Lake, the highest volcanic lake in the world, at an altitude of 2,189 meters. Against the blue sky and white clouds, the calm Heavenly Lake, surrounded by 16 peaks, looks like a blue jade.

    Then, get down for the spectacular Changbai Waterfall with a 68-meter drop, formed when the water from Heavenly Lake cascades down. From the observation deck, you can admire two strands, like two huge flying dragons flying over the ground.

    Return to the Small Heavenly Lake hidden in the pristine birch forest and take a leisurely stroll along the clear stream there. Continue on to Lvyuan Pool (Green Deep Pool) - a waterfall falls from the cliff into the pool, adding color and elegance to the water.

    Today's tour ends in the Valley Forest - a natural oxygen bar. Take a walk at the bottom of the valley with tall old trees and huge rocks to experience the silence and coolness of the pristine forest. Afterwards, take a sightseeing bus ride down the mountain.

    After the tour, return to Changbaishan Resort.

    Note: You can also choose to visit the West Slope instead of the North Slope, or spend 1 extra day visiting the West Slope. Generally speaking, the West Slope is not so crowded, where the beautiful wildflowers catch your eye in summer.
