Mount Changbai Sets Two Guinness RecordsTianchi, a lake on the top of Mount Changbai in northeast China's Jilin Province, has been recognized as the highest volcanic lake in the world.
A nearby waterfall, which plunges 68 meters over a cliff, is also regarded as the largest waterfall originating from crater lakes.
The Shanghai Office of the Guinness Book of World Records has granted certificates to these two scenic spots in Mount Changbai recently.
With an altitude of 2,189.1 meters, Tianchi covers an area of 9.82 square kilometers. The lake is the deepest mountain lake in China with an average depth of 204 meters. The Changbai Waterfall is 1,250 meters away from the crater lake.
Mount Changbai is a famous scenic spot which has attracted tourists worldwide, including Chinese and foreign senior leaders.
Experts believe that now Mount Changbai has found an entry in the Guinness Book of Records, it will become better known throughout the world and help boost the local tourism industry.
