Amazing Snow in Luoyang in May
On May 14, snow was witnessed on the 2,216-meter Yuhuang Peak in Luoyang's Baiyun Mountain Scenic Area. Blooming azaleas covered in "down jacket" appear even more delicate, and tourists were all amazed at the coexistence of summer view and winter view, "red flowers against white snow", at the beginning of summer.
Baiyun Mountain boasts not only the 2,216-meter "Highest Peak in Central China", but also Jiulong Valley hung with connected waterfalls. The unique geographic advantages endowed Baiyun Mountain with multiple climates, represented by sunny weather at the foot of the mountain, but cold and foggy on the top. It's not rare to see snow in March and frost in April on Yuhuang Peak.
It's highly recommended to see the view in your own eyes!
