Heilongjiang Forest Ecological Tourism Festival, an event aiming to promote healthy and environmentally friendly tourism, will be held in Yichun, Heilongjiang province, on July 13.

The annual gala, now in its 12th year, will feature folk song performances and a classical music concert performed by China Philharmonic Orchestra in Hinggan National Forest Park.

During the festival, tourists can venture deep into the forests, go river rafting and attend exhibitions of paintings, calligraphy and carvings on birch boards.

Trade talks and symposiums on ecotourism will also be held during the event.

Located in the Lesser Hinggan Mountains, Yichun has a forest coverage of 86 percent and is home to the Korean Pine, a nationally protected plant.
