SICHUNAN, CHINA (CCTV/CNN) - A natural cold-weather phenomenon draws tourists to Sichuan Province in southwest China.
The 9th Icefall Festival celebrates the scenery where every winter numerous natural waterfalls partially freeze.
Some of the many waterfalls are still flowing, others are frozen solid.
Thousands of tourists are expected to visit the area over the winter.
The festival ends when the temperatures start to warm at the end of March, and the ice melts again.
