China’s snow town is located in Shuangfeng Forest Farm

  China’s snow town is located in Shuangfeng Forest Farm, under the jurisdiction of Dahailin Forest Bureau in Mudanjiang city, northeast China’s Heilongjiang province. Situated at an elevation of 1,500 meters above sea level, the town covering 500 hectares is 105 kilometers from Changting town. Influenced by the warm current of the Sea of Japan and cold fronts from the Lake Baikal, the snow period here is up to seven months every year and snow thickness may reach around 2 meters. The snow here is famous for its thickness and high viscosity. Snow hangs from the eaves to the ground, forming a unique scene of “snow curtains”.
