Breathtaking frost flowers appear on Xinjiang's Bosten Lake

Rare frost flowers recently appeared on the icy surface of Bosten Lake in northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, transforming the region's largest lake into a gleaming meadow of white.

The breathtaking landscape was formed by a sudden, sharp drop in temperature, causing the cooled saturated water vapor to condense on the lake's icy surface. As the frost accumulated and thickened, flower-shaped ice crystals were formed.
