As reflected in the untroubled surface of the lake, the sky shines with flickering dots of light, not to mention the occasional shooting star streaking across it. The Milky Way, with its bevy of twinkling stars, can be seen stretching across Tianchi Lake, creating an enchanting nocturnal scene, as rendered in the picture. [Photo/Jilin Daily]


The breathtaking Changbai Mountain range – located in Northeast China's Jilin province – is a national 5A scenic area that has been listed in the UNESCO Man and Biosphere Reserve Program. It is also an international A-level nature reserve. Tianchi, or the Heavenly Lake, must not be missed during any trip to this area. [Photo/Jilin Daily]
