This ice festival takes place a two-hour car ride northwest of Beijing and is smaller than the more-famous Harbin Ice Festival. Hundreds of ice scupltures from local and foreign artists are on display from mid-January until the end of February every...more
We got there towards to end of the winter season, so the outside sculptures were melting and it was starting to look like this was going to be a bad experience. Then we went down into the protected area and it was amazing. It's like...More
I had the chance to visit the Longqing Gorge Ice and Snow Festival on 16 Jan 2018 . Although all other attractions were presumbly closed as the Dragon Escalator was not operating; the small Ice and snow festival was enough to tease me in a...More
Consider this a much smaller version of the Harbin ice festival but it is still worth it. We arrived here and was met with a sight of lights all over the mountains. The made up lights that made it appear like the great walls including...More
We arrived there at about 4.30pm, lights were turned on at just after 5pm. The ice sculptures were lovely, so much detail and effort taken in to making them. Cost 100rmb entry, which was totally worth it.
The weather was very cold so take lots...More

I've been to Harbin Ice Festival just the once (I couldn't help but be amazed by it) but had friends visiting this Winter and wanted to show them an Ice Festival knowing one is located at Longqing Gorge so took a trip here.

Thanks its helpful. In fact I just went and return. The ice festival is ready and open to visitor. The others are not as the dragon escalator is not operating; so I cannot go further. As for the transport, I went by bus 919 ; and get down at a stop called " Yanqing Dong Quan" and went to the venue at 40 Yuan with a private car. I discover on return trip , visitor can walk out to the main road and take a bus "Y43 " until its terminal ( where everybody in the bus must get alight ) at a stop called " Guisuibeijienan" where the bus 919 ( returning to beijing ) will also stop to bring us back to Beijing. I noted that the two stops " Dong Quan" and "Guisuibeijingnan" are stops following each other in the 919 routing. Hence I would recommend public transportation to be " take 919 from beijing and alight at Yanqing " Guisuibeijingnan" , then take Y43 and alight at Longqingxia bus stop. Return trip is just to reverse the routing. Note last bus timing are 1930 ( Y43) and 1830 ( 919) as displayed at the bus stop.
