Lake of Heaven
Changbaishan Lake of Heaven is called Tianchi in Chinese, which is the deepest lake of China, locating on Mount Changbaishan in Jilin Province. Also, it is the boundary lake between China and DPRK. Mount Changbaishan is one of the top ten famous mountains of China, and is called the greatest mountain of Northeast China.
As per recorded, Changbaishan was a volcano and erupted for several times during the Qing Dynasty. Gradually, the crater collected water and formed a lake. The lake is about 10 square km with an altitude of 2150 meters. Sixteen mountain peaks surround the Lake of Heaven like sentries guarding the watery gates of heaven.
