Hegang gets its name from the scene of "cranes standing on high ridges". It is located in northeastern Heilongjiang Province, transitioning from the Lesser Xing'an Mountains to the Sanjiang Plain. Across the Heilong River to the north lies Russia. Situated at the golden triangle formed by the Heilong, Songhua and Xing'an Mountains Rivers, Hegang has rich coal reserves and is a major national coal base.

On the border of China, Hegang's pristine environment remains well-preserved. Key attractions include Red-Crowned Crane Nature Reserve and Lesser Xing'an Mountains Forest Park, making Hegang a natural paradise. Bordering Russia, Hegang offers a taste of Russian culture and architecture. With multiple ethnic minorities like Oroqen and Ewenki, visitors can experience their unique customs.

Hegang is also a popular winter destination for ice and snow activities. The harmonic blend of border city characteristics, coal culture, ecological beauty and ethnic diversity makes Hegang truly unique.
