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... More

I had the pleasure of visiting on a very cold snowy day but once I reached the top the sky was blue and views amazing! Make sure you bring cash as they keep changing you for all small things and only with cash! Bring good walking shoes as the trip to the top is a must!

We saw the heavenly lake (天池) in winter with -30C windchill, and it was one of the most breathtaking views I have ever seen. I would love to come back and see it during the other three seasons. Officially, they have a 1.5m height requirement, but with some negotiation and help from our hotel's front desk staff, we were able... More

There had a huge sea of people in the holiday at the Changbai Mountain, and it will let you no more mood to enjoy the view. It took almost 4 hours from Yanji to Changbai Mountain, it is a long and difficult driving so we went in a tour group. People will be better to bring some foods by self... 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...
