Baishan is neighbor to cities of Yanbian, Tonghua and Jilin. Yalujiang River separates it from North Korea in the south. Baishan is covered with mountains, hills and valleys with rivers winding across. Lava tableland is a special geographic feature of the land.
It is wonderful to visit Baishan in every season of a year. Each year in summer, autumn and winter, the city holds different tourism festivals such as Wild Flowers Festival in spring, Red Leaves Festival in autumn as well as Ice and Snow Festival in winter. Be aware that, owing to its mountainous terrain and northerly latitude, the region has some of the coldest winters in China.
By train from Jilin city or Changchun city, via Tonghua, however the train is slow and the physical condition is poor.
