Ice and snow transform landscape of Jiuzhaigou, SW China

Jiuzhaigou Valley, a UNESCO World Heritage Site in southwest China's Sichuan Province, is famous for its majestic and stunning scenery. As the cold weather brings ice and snow to the valley, the crystals juxtaposed with the vibrant colors of the ponds and trees create an almost otherworldly scene. 

A 7.0-magnitude earthquake partially damaged Jiuzhaigou Valley on August 8, 2017. Many of the areas have since been renovated and reopened to tourists.
