Harbin has always been the center of attention as far as winter tourism is concerned with its ice and snow festival every January. However, 300 miles outside the city; lies a small village said to be the ultimate winter destination.

Closed off by surrounding mountains, the village, aptly named Xuexiang, or "home of snow", has steadily build up its reputation among tourists over the last few years. It consists of around twenty wooden houses decorated with strings of golden corn and red chili hung to dry. In winter the snow here can reach up to two metres. This absorbs sound creating a winter wonderland. (www.china.org.cn\Desert Eagle/bbs.fengniao)
