The Yanghugou eco-tourism area is located at the junction of Benxi County and Hengren County of the Liaoning Province. Yanghugou itself belongs to the hills of the Changbai Mountains, and with its lush forest areas, is a place known throughout China for its gorgeous red colored leaves. The famous First China Maple Road can also be found here, set up such that it can be observed like a maple gallery. The high latitude and long frosty periods are Yanghugou’s secrets for such stunning Benxi maples, and the best season for sightseeing is from the end of September to mid-October. If you are nearby during this short period of the year, don’t miss this amazingly beautiful season! Yanghugou was selected as the top Undiscovered China Attractions.
