Ice Palace Built Beside Lake of Heaven
Adjust font size:

Construction of an "Ice Palace" was recently completed near the Tianchi Lake, adding new appeal to the beautiful natural scenic spot located in northwestern China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region.

The steel-structured house is encrusted with ice, and stretches across 1,000 square meters. Inside, a variety of ice sculptures are on display, each imbued with local flavor.

Visitors to the Tianchi Lake will soon be treated with local cuisine and entertaining performances in the palace.

Tianchi Lake, literally meaning "Lake of Heaven," is known for its gorgeous natural view. The temperature in winter there is usually around minus ten degrees Celsius.
