Abstract/Summary Recreational value of an outdoor site is reflected in a visitor's willingness to pay for the visit. This can sometimes be estimated using the Travel Cost Methodology (TCM) as the consumer's surplus under the site demand curve. Based on a case study of in Changbaishan Mountain Biosphere Reserve (CMBR) located in Northeast China, this paper focuses on the recreational values of tourism using the Travel Cost Method and speculates about the extent to which this valuer depends on the biodiversity present in China.
