CHIFENG, China (CNN) -- A gorgeous frozen waterfall is presenting a grotesque icicle world in contrast to the warm spring in a national nature reserve near the city of Chifeng of Inner Mongolia.

The frozen waterfall is about five meters wide, with a fall of 12 meters. It has formed four tiers of stairs from up down, with clusters of icicles.

The rare spectacle is the result of the low-temperature enclave created by the special gully topography, with no invasion of warm and wet current or sunshine. The abundant rainfall in recent years has constantly replenished the water in the upper end of the fall, thus resulting in the wonder of hue glacier.
