On February 26, the traditional Lantern Festival, Wulingyuan, Zhangjiajie, a world natural heritage site, saw quite a different landscape--the top of Tianzi Mountain is wrapped in snow, while the colorful and fragrant flowers outside Huanglong Cave are in bloom.
With the recent cold air, the temperature in high-altitude scenic spots such as Tianzi Mountain in Wulingyuan dropped to about 0℃, which led to spectacular rime scenes. At the Huanglongdong Ecological Plaza, which is located at the lower elevation of the mountain, in spite of the low temperature, there are still various kinds of flowers in bloom, like golden cole flowers, purple magnolia, pink peach blossoms, etc., attracting many tourists to admire the spring scenery.
