Place: Jilin, Jilin province

During the winter months, the trees in Jilin city become covered with otherworldly rime ice — the result of the cold air interacting with warm vapor from the river. The scene is considered one of China's four natural wonders, along with the Stone Forest in Yunnan, the rivers and mountains in Guilin, and the Three Gorges along the Yangtze River.

The city of Jilin sits along the Songhua River, one of the few rivers in Jilin province that does not freeze in winter. To celebrate the event, the city holds a Rime Ice and Snow Festival every year around mid-January.
