长白山 The Changbai Mountains
The Changbai Mountains
Changbai Mountains, the general term for the eastern mountainous area in Northeast China, is made up of a series of parallel ranges mostly at an altitude between 500 -1,000 m. The main part is located on the border of China and North Korea, and the main peak is Mount Baitou.
The Heavenly Pond of Mount Baitou
The Heavenly Pond of Mount Baitou lies on the top of Mount Baitou, and is a lake formed by water accumulated in the crater. Its reflection is as clear as a mirror. Encircled by precipitous mountains, the pond sets the mountains off, forming beautiful scenery.
The Changbai Mountains are a great treasure house of natural resources. The "three treasures of the Northeast" often mentioned by people - ginseng, mink and pilose antler - are produced here.
