Outing: Ice Sculpture Festival at Longqingxia

Longqingxia Gorge

For the second year, BIS will make it possible for its members to visit the spectacular ice carving elaborately sculpted in the narrow Longqing Gorge, north of the Ming Tombs at a distance of about 85 km from downtown Beijing. According to a leaflet from the Beijing Tourism Administration, this year's show of 53 groups of ice sculptures "is broad in scale, exquisite in artistic form, and ingenious in plot."
