Sensing the new opportunities, loggers started to open family hotels and restaurants. Nearly 130 households are now involved in tourism business, said Fan Zhaoyi, who runs a family hotel of 15 rooms. "More than 50 of them used to be my workmates," added Fan.

"My family can make 200,000-300,000 yuan each year, which puts us in the middle bracket," said Fan.

Ten years ago, Xuexiang Village received less than 3,000 tourists a year, now the number reaches 150,000, said Yu Zebo, head of the tourism bureau under the Forest Industry Bureau of Heilongjiang province. The annual output value has risen to 50 million yuan from less than 50,000 yuan in 10 years.
