Chángbái Shān (China). 'China’s largest nature reserve ranges over an eye-opening 2100 sq km. It’s not just the birch and pine forests that stretch to the horizon and harbour everything from tigers to rare ginseng; it’s not just the endless vistas, the towering waterfalls and the 70km-long canyon with spear-like outcrops. It’s volcanic Chángbái Shān itself and the calderafilling Heaven Lake.' http://www.lonelyplanet.com/china/jilin/changbai-shan

"There is a pleasure in the pathless woods. There is a rapture on the lonely shore. There is a society where none intrudes, by the deep sea and music in it roars. I love not man the less but Nature more." ~ Lord Byron (Étretat, France)
