Temperate Forest Vegetation in Northeast China; Jilin, Heilongjiang
This trip explores the fantastic forests of northeastern China, an area with more than 39.6% forest coverage and encompassing the country’s most abundant forest resources. First, we will explore the Changbai Mountain forest ecosystem, the National Field Scientific Observation Station and the Changbai Mountain Nature Reserve. Changbai Mountains Nature Reserve, part of UNESCO’s Man and Biosphere Program, covers a total of 2000 square km. Then, we will go to Jingpo Wetlands, one of the largest alpine lakes in China. It is famous for the underground forest(a forest near the crater which has the lowest elevation in this area), underground lava tunnel, geological wonders and the ruins of the Bohai Kingdom dating to the Tang Dynasty (618-907). The trip will end at Changchun.
