Storyline


Tourists have been treated to an extraordinary natural phenomenon as a spinning ice circle formed in a partially frozen river in Hulun Buir City of north China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region.

The ice circle was formed in the Yimin River by a tributary that created a vortex like motion in the river. This motion made the ice flow in a circular pattern ultimately forming a perfectly circular, rotating disk of ice approximately four meters in diameter.

Tourists came to watch this extraordinary scene after local resident, Zhao Guowen, uploaded videos of the ice circle on the internet.

"When my swimming mates and I came here to take pictures of the rime ice a few days ago, we suddenly stumbled upon this natural scene, so we recorded some videos and uploaded them online," said Zhao.
