Forests and vegetation are living along the mountain lines between 1,600 meters and 2,800 meters where the famous charming Tianchi Lake is located.

On the top of the mount the climate is very bad and its temperature is usually below zero centigrade degree. It is difficult to believe in the fact that creature would be living there because almost all is frozen even the only few water there. However, snow lotus and other unknown flowers are living and adapting themselves to the bad environment for a long time. Partly it is a real miracle.
