One of China's natural wonders is drawing tourists to Inner Mongolia. Beautiful formations of rime ice decorate the trees with what looks like blossom.

In North China's Inner Mongolia, one of China's natural wonders is making its annual appearance.

Rime ice, or "snow willow" as it's also known, are beautiful formations formed when winter fog condenses on tree branches and leaves to form individual white ice crystals.

This dreamy white natural reserve north of Chifeng City has recently had a heavy snowfall and is now covered in rime ice. Huge waves of snow form one after the other and the frozen trees seem to be full of white winter snow blossom.

With almost 30 square miles of pure white beauty, the reserve draws plenty of tourists, despite the freezing temperatures.
