The Ice Frozen Cave (Bingbing Bei) is located in the northwest of Shibanyan Township, Linzhou City. The water here is warm during winter, and cold and icy during summer. The freezing season begins every March and lasts for as long as five months. The warmer the weather, the larger and harder the ice grows. It is not until the Mid-Autumn Festival in the eighth month of the lunar calendar (usually September) that the ice here begins to melt. Since the freezing season happens during summertime, it is a wonderful place for visitors to chilly down the minute they step into the area. Naturally then, it is a popular summer resort.
