Updated 12:47, 19-Jan-2021

A sunny day comes after snow at Jinfo Mountain in southwest China's Chongqing Municipality, bringing a rare scene of "cloudfall" and attracting many visitors. The clouds descended along the mountain slopes and swirled as they hit the ground, like splashes out of a waterfall.

Jinfo Mountain means "golden Buddha mountain" in Chinese. It gets its name for its resemblance to the Buddha when sunlight shines on the peaks and creates a golden radiance like that of Buddha.
