Ever imagined what it would be like to be in a real winter wonderland? Like a proper one with a huge snow castle? What if we told you such a place exists? Every year, for the last 33 years, China has been hosting world’s largest snow and ice festival in the northern city of Harbin, the capital of Heilongjiang Province.

The main attraction of the Harbin Snow and Ice festival, which has various theme zones, is the snow world. The snow world covers an area of almost 750,000 sq meters and has almost 180,000 cubic meters of ice!

Every year, the festival has ice sculptors from all over the world compete. This year, according to reports, 50 farmers worked relentlessly for 20 days to provide the sculptors with ice blocks, sourced from Harbin's Songhua River.
