A new travel route by train will take tourists from Tumen, northeastern China's Jilin province, to the Chilbosan (Seven-treasure) Mountains in North Korea's North Hamgyong Province.

The trip, which will officially start operating at the end of April, will allow visitors to live in the houses of North Korean families, bathe in the sea and soak in the hot spring water, while enjoying the mountain scenery on the coast.

Visitors can also watch mass gymnastics events staged by 500,000 North Korean children as well as a number of indigenous performances by adults, according to Li Changxun, director of the overseas tourism bureau of Tumen city.

The trip will last three days and four nights, costing 1,900 yuan. The trip will be organized at least once a week from May.
