bei Changchun, Jilin (China)
Recorded during the afternoon of December 25, 2018, with temperatures in the minus 26 deg Celsius range, and a strong northwest wind came up before dusk.
Those interested in History will probably find this location fascinating. It is not at all what I expected after seeing the movie "The Last Emperor". A few of the many captions from the Chinese-Japanese-English description plates are summarized in the various waypoint and photo comments.
There is also a museum of the Japanese occupation of NE China on the East side of the palace, which was not viewed on the day and is not part of this track.
Admission is free to international visitors over 65 years (bring passport).
It's easiest to view the route using the "Open Street" or "Open Cycle" Maps available in Wikiloc. The default Google Map doesn't work in China or is not properly geo-referenced (apparently an unresolved issue between Google and China). There is also a Jilin Province free Wikiloc map download, which facilitates navigation and the recording of new Wikilocs in the Province.
