Visitors marvel at the vibrant evergreen trees amongst the snowy landscape.

December-There is some rain this month and many of the families stay at home, keeping warm and preparing their pickled meat for the spring festival.
January-This is the coldest month with a great deal of snow. People stay at home to prepare for the New Years holiday.
