Changbaishan Nature Reserve is a 210,000 hectares large area of dense virgin forests and mountains. China's largest national park sits in the southeast of the Jilin province and straddles the border with North Korea.

The park is home to a wide variety of flora and fauna, including protected birds, such as cranes and the rare Manchurian tigers. Mount Paektu, on the (disputed) border with North Korea is an old volcanic peak that rises some 2194 m above sea level. In the crater, which is 13 km in circumference, Tianchi (Lake of Heaven) has formed. The area around the lake is one of the park's most scenic places and offers excellent terrain for hiking. There are several hot springs in its vicinity.

The nearest town to the park is Hepingyinzi and accommodation is available there.
