China Snow Town

Last updated by peggie at 2014/7/7

China National Geography selects China’s Snow Town as China’s most beautiful attractions in December. The snow here is famous for its thick, abundant, high viscosity and high-quality characteristics. In winter, it almost snows every day, becoming the largest snowfall area in China. Every year the snow period is up to 7 months and snow thickness may reach around 2 meters high. Snow hangs from eaves to the ground, forming a unique snow curtain. The residential that consist of over 100 households covered by snow looks like an interconnected igloo. Covered by snow, houses show a variety of shapes here like horses, lying rabbits, turtles, giant mushroom etc.

In the evening, tourists can participate in a bonfire party together with local people and sleep over at local people’s homes. For photography enthusiasts, birches, cedrus, little huts, red lanterns, wattle wall, sunrise etc are all wonderful themes for photography. In addition, many famous films and TV series were shooting here, such as Chuang Guandong, Shiny Knife (Shanliang Jundao), where people can visit the film bases too.
