Cold spell blankets east China in thick snow

A cold snap sweeping across China is providing spectacular scenes for photography enthusiasts as the dip in temperatures brings with it snowfall and rime ice.

The Lushan Mountain Scenic Area in east China's Jiangxi Province has turned into a vision in white, as trees put on breathtaking ice crystals and fog permeated the woods.

"When I saw these trees last night, they were still green in color. But this morning, they all changed to white, a completely different scenery, and I feel very happy," said a tourist.

Mount Lushan is on the UNESCO World Heritage Site list.

Meanwhile, the Huangshan Mountain Scenic Area in east China's Anhui Province saw its first snowfall of 2021 on Thursday.

Famous for its pines, the mountain is now covered with a blanket of white, prompting visitors to take turn to snap photos of the beautiful scenery.

The majestic Mount Huangshan, also known as the Yellow Mountain, is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Covering an area of 1,200 square kilometers, the Mount Huangshan is famous for its peculiarly-shaped rocks, cloud-shrouded peaks, pines and hot springs.
