• Aershan Forest attracts many photographers in the autumn (mid September through October to early November) when the colour contrasts of red and gold leaves set against the whites of birch and aspen, and the dark greens of the conifers (aspen and pine) provide the perfect backdrop to the blue, cyan and vivid greens lakes. And you can even see snow on the branches!

    Aershan is located on the southern sections of the Greater Hing'an Range, a 1,200 km long volcanic mountain range in northeast China which divides the Manchurian plain of northeastern China to the east from the Mongolian Plateau of Inner Mongolia to the west.

    The Aershan National Forest Park is a 100,000+ hectare forest reserve, which is well known for its dramatic volcanic landscapes, dense forests, valleys, mountaintop crater lakes, rivers, grasslands, and springs. Dense forests of larch, birch, aspen, and pine cover the region with shrubs covering at the highest elevations. The park infrastructure is well developed, with boardwalks and paths leading to the key scenic areas.

The park infrastructure is well developed, with boardwalks and paths leading to the key scenic areas.

    It’s more rolling hills than big mountains, which are all covered in thick carpets of mixed pine, aspen and deciduous forests. The Halaha River rolls through it on its 500-kilometer journey into the grasslands. They say brown bear, elk and wolves prowl its depths, but squirrels and sparrows are more likely encounters. And when the season turns, the whole place becomes a mass of gorgeousness.



    Aershan attracts many photographers in the autumn when all leaves of larch, birch, aspen, and pine turn red and bright brown.
