With the seasonal rise in temperature at Changbai Mountain Nature Reserve in Yanbian county, Jilin province, frozen Tianchi Lake has begun to melt.

Tourists got a chance to enjoy both summer and winter scenery recently as they visited the scenic area.

While the flowers have been in full bloom at the foot of the mountain, about half of Tianchi Lake, located in the volcanic cone of the mountain's main peak, remains covered with ice.

"The lake began to melt visibly on June 10," said Wu Jinming, a staff member at the scenic area. "It is expected to completely melt by Thursday, which is about a week later than last year."
