Stunning photographs have captured rare shots of Taihang Mountain’s waterfalls frozen over due to an icy drop in temperatures.
The mesmerising images, which were taken in the Hebei Province of northern China, reveal that the usually cascading waters that attract tourists from all of the world annually, have been suspended in icy shards by the cold.
The collection of images show that the mountain’s waterfalls, which usually fill the area with the sound of loud thunderous clashes, have transformed into thousands of icicles.
Impressed visitors are flocking to see the natural phenomenon, which was reportedly last documented in 2012.
Taihang’s mountain range encompasses 250 miles from north to south and runs through three of the country’s provinces. It extends over 250 miles and has an average elevation of 4,900 to 6,600 ft – with its principal peak, Xiao Wutaishan, standing at 9,455ft.
Weather in the country’s freezing Hebei Province ranges at temperatures between one and -12 degrees during the winter months.
