Icicles hang from the rocky mountain where water normally runs freely. Tourists flocked to the frozen waterfall in Taihang Mountain at Shunping County, north China’s Hebei Province, on January 3.

TEMPERATURES have taken a severe drop to -12C in the Taihang Mountains of Hebei Province, China, even causing waterfalls to freeze over.

Looking eerily like they’ve been frozen in time, tourists have been flocking to see the natural phenomenon take shape.
