Rime, also known as snow willows, or ice flowers, is a unique phenomenon in Jilin. It occurs when the winter fog condenses on tree branches and leaves to form individual white ice crystals, creating stunning scenery. Jilin rime is regarded as one of the 4 natural wonders of China, together with the landscapes of Guilin, Kunming's Stone Forest, and the Yangtze Three Gorges. For an ideal wintry getaway, combine Jilin with a snow trip to nearby Changbaishan.

Day 2: Jilin

Get up early, transfer to Songhua River to see the famous rime, also known as snow willows or ice flowers. Be aware that the formation of rime is largely weather dependent. Rime usually forms after 1:00am and grows increasingly in the latter half of the cold night. It usually melts away when the sun is up high at noon or can be blown away by stronger winds. It has been calculated that rime tends to last an average 9.6 hours in 1 day, with a record of 44 hours and 57 minutes. After getting your fill of the stunning rime scenery, make a stop at the Meteorite Shower Museum which houses the largest chunk of meteor in the world, followed by a visit to Wenmiao, the second largest Confucius temple in the world. Here you will visit the Hall of Great Achievements and the Hall of the Relics of the Sage.
