First snow of autumn arrived in Dagu Mountain of Sichuan

In the evening of August 24th, after autumn season of 2016 started, there arrived the first snow at the Dagu Iceberg Scenic Spot in the Aba Tibetan and Qiang Autonomous Prefecture of the Sichuan Province. This has brought the tourists who came to visit the Dagu Iceberg a chance to play in the snow, enjoy the pine trees and experience the landscape of the northern country. They also could enjoy the beautiful picture of the snow scene in contrast with the colorful forest.


The temperature at the scenic spot falls between 3 degree Celsius to 20 degree Celsius which is right at the proper time for sightseeing and vacations.


It was learned that the Dagu Iceberg is "the nearest iceberg from the urban areas" which is 270 km away from Chengdu. It is a modern mountain glacier. Due to the high altitude (4860 m), the Dagu Mountain peak is covered with snow up to 10 months every year which is also the snowy season here.  The Dagu Iceberg has snow in August because of the high altitude, cold air and low temperatures which meet the conditions for snowfall.
