Our tour took us to Chang Bai Mountain, which is along the North Eastern coastline that borders North Korea. Getting to the mountain top, you have to take a bus that drives you to the trails. It was snowing as we climbed the mountain, and it blocked visibility of most of it sights. It made it more difficult to get around. There were even snow ploughs removing snow around its facilities! However, despite its disappointing weather it’s only in moments like these that you get these glorious sights, when the sun is just peeking through the clouds. Truly the silver lining in a situation!
Although everything freezes here in the winter, the streams are steaming, as its thermal springs run along the mountains. It’s an amazing sight to behold! At the top of the mountain area, they had food venders and one of them was selling eggs and sausages prepared using the heat from the thermal water! At the hotel we stayed in, there was thermal spring water in the taps. I felt so lucky to wash my hair that night with spring water! it made my hair and skin feel really smooth.
I also enjoyed people watching, seeing how they were dressed for this environment. Many bright colours! It’s a stunning contrast set against the pale whiteness of the snow.
This was an amazing trip and I would recommend going here if you have the chance to!
