Xuexiang, or China's Snow Town, is actually not its real name, but its nickname attests to just how beautiful the place is in winter. The town is officially known as the Shuangfeng Wood Farm.

Located in northeast China's Heilongjiang province, Xuexiang sees snowfall for seven months in a year. The snow covering the roofs of its famous log cabins can sometimes reach one meter high!

An unusual scene unique to the village is "snow mushrooms," which are formed after sticky snow falls onto wood piles.
