Changbaishan Mountain Range is located on the edge of Siberia and near North Korea; is one of China’s coldest places (Temperatures in winter can drop to minus 35 degrees Celsius).
As a dormant volcano, it boasts rare animals, marvelous lakes, amazing hot springs, and forests that stretch to the horizon. There is splendid scenery during the four seasons, but it is especially beautiful in winter.
The most beautiful part of Changbai Mountain is undoubtedly Heavenly Lake, situated at an altitude of 2,189 meters.
Participants from around the World realized a lot of amazing snow carvings; these structures are lit up at night, creating an amazing, fairytale-like atmosphere.
Magnificent ice sculptures; buildings, statues, and interactive exhibits entirely made out of ice are on display during the festival.
