Rime creates winter wonder in NW China

On November 26, the Liupan Mountain in Guyuan City of northwest China's Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region turned into a fairyland as the rime and snow on plants looked like all of them were wearing "white coat".

Rime forms when water in the air is cooled below zero degrees Celsius, as the frozen droplets cling onto surfaces, especially plants, and creates the breathtaking scenery.
