Vast mist-covered Yunfeng Lake 

Lustrous and dazzling Yunxia Cave 

Baijifeng National Forest Park 

Tonghua has two waters systems, Songhua and Yalu rivers, as well as China's largest crater-lake Qunlong Bay that is an unduplicated natural landscape. Tonghua has mountains, such as Wunvfeng, Bajifeng and Luotong mountains, as well as China's largest lava Yunxia Cave that has recorded the geological evolution of Changbai Mountain from 600 million years ago to now. Tonghua has forests all over the mountains and plains, such as Korean pines, valuable northeast China ashes, roses, economic hazelnuts and kiwi vines, and the forest cover rate reaches 61.9%. 

Tonghua has roads as Tonghua - Shenyang, Tonghua – Dandong and Huinan – Changchun expressways and Tonghua – Dandong passenger rail have been open to traffic and Tonghua Airport will be open to air traffic. Tonghua is the nearest city access to the sea in Jilin Province, enabling people to go through mountains to reach the coast of the Yellow Sea through self-driving. Tonghua has culture, such as Changbai Manchu paper-cutting technique, Changbai Mountain Manchu embroidery skill and Daquan raw liquor brewing technique, and so many intangible cultural heritages can make people go beyond the time barrier. 

Here, there is no hustle and bustle of the metropolis but only green mountains and dense woodlands; there is no fickleness of the metropolis but only green waters and lightly-flying wild ducks. Once going into the earth of Tonghua, you will be greeted with pleasing green and touching landscape. 

Advance towards a strong tourism city mainly based on project construction. 

In the boom of still growing tourism development, Tonghua City has established a database of 100 tourism projects and strived to grow to a strong tourism city from a big tourism city based on "one body and two wings, five groups and one belt"-based spatial structure and layout and through "large project-led, large marketing-driven and large cooperation-interacted" strategy. 

Longwan Lake Group is a wonderland left after the volcanic eruption in the ancient geological time, where the scenic spot is serene and beautiful and mountains and waters form a contrast. The water of six bays, including Sanjiaolong Bay, Dalong Bay and Xiaolong Bay, is blue as jade to be like pearls scattering in high mountains and lofty hills, and the bays rank the first in the country by the number, centralized distribution, different forms and integrated preservation. Based on the huge tourism potential contained by it, the city planned and invested RMB 10 billion in building Longwan tourism resort. Currently, Jinchuan Tourist Service Center, volcano culture exhibition hall, agricultural sight-seeing and pick-up farm and other projects have been fully opened to the public, adding rich contents and services for the tourism in Longwan.  

Now, returning to nature has become a new tourism fashion. The organic combination of unique natural ecology and cultural landscape has created a health and leisure place yearn by urban people. 

At Tonghua County Ying'ebu Reservoir area, European-style castles and Japanese-style log cabins have constituted a healthy industrial park under the shade, Ying'ebu Health Valley. It consists of four parks, medical rehabilitation park, water amusement park, ecological farming park and ecological cultivation park, and is a multifunctional ecological zone integrating medical care, rehabilitation, leisure, vacation and travel. 

Once April comes, the fragrance of rape flowers fills north China. Ji'an-based 10,000-mu rape flowers tourism project beside the Yalu River with phase 1 investment of RMB 23 million is being sowed. 40 days later, rape flowers will bloom, cover the land with yellow and be brimming with strong fragrance to attract people to indulge in pleasures without stop. 

Implement the "tourism upgrade project" in tourist attractions and drive eco-tourism with green development. 

Yunxia Cave is approved to be a national 4A-level tourist attraction and Koguryo scenic spot has passed the provincial preliminary appraisal for declaring to be a national 5A-level tourist attraction and been reported to the national scenic spot appraisal committee for approval. 

Baijifeng National Forest Park, known as "city oxygen bar", has been successfully promoted to a national 4A-level tourist attraction as "dressing celestial maidens"-known three-step waterfall makes people excited; "Baijifeng Peak" makes people feel "watching all other mountains in a single glance"; "Tianqiaofeng Peak" makes people experience how dangerous, odd and scared it is to climb the Huashan Mountain; "ancient post road" enables people to experience  exploring the ancient environment and visiting scenic spots; at "Yingshan Lake", people can go boating, play with water and go angling in a relaxed manner. 

Wunvfeng National Forest Park, a national 4A-level tourist attraction, is one of the first batch of 20 key spot demonstration parks of the country, has 26 big peaks, including 17 peaks with an altitude of above 1,000 meters. There are five steep and straight and gracefully standing peaks in multi-peaked mountains, which are known as Wunvfeng. Wunvfeng has high mountains and deep valleys, cliffs everywhere, interweaving ravines, odd peaks and beautiful landscape, and red maple leaves, which is a natural wonderland to attract millions of tourists.
