Located in the northwest suburbs, 80 kilometers from the city proper, Longqing Gorge is a natural scenic spot blending the gracefulness of southern China with the north's power and grandeur. Due to shade from mountains towering on both sides the area has an annual ice period of four months, providing the ideal venue for an ice-lantern festival. Each year during the festival about 80 groups of ice lanterns, ice-and-snow sculptures and ice slides are displayed along 300 meters of the gorge. Colorful lighting adds to the fun of evening visits.
