As the northmost point of China, Mohe Village is known as "China's Arctic Village" and the "place that never sleeps". Every year around the summer solstice, it is the best place to watch the Northern Lights and White Nights in the country. In winter, it becomes a world of ice and snow. Visitors can go skating and skiing, have a snowball fight with friends, make a snowman with your family, or even learn how to catch fish by making holes in the ice. By staying at a local family hotel, you can thoroughly experience daily life in the Arctic.
Admission: 60 yuan
Opening hour: all day
Getting there: Take train to Mohe; from there it's a two-hour bus ride to the village.
