Snowfall – in the middle of August – hits south west Yunnan, China

Unexpected snow blanketed the Baima Snow Mountain Nature Reserve in Deqen Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture in southwest China’s Yunnan Province.

The unusual snowfall – in the middle of summer – results from the consecutive rain and decreased temperature. High altitude areas such as the Baima Snow Mountain Nature Reserve have turned into a world of ice and snow.
