Incredible photographs show a waterfall in China FROZEN into thousands of icicles after temperatures plummeted to -12 degrees

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.
