Frozen waterfall in China - level 2

Frozen waterfall in China - level 2

06-01-2015 07:00

Temperatures dropped as low as -12°C in an area in China, and part of a waterfall on the Yellow River froze.

It looks amazing. Tourists flock from across the country to have a look. There are ice and icicles everywhere.

However, the weather can get even colder. Two years ago, the temperature dropped to -40°C in China’s far west. If this happens again, the whole waterfall will freeze.

Difficult words: flock (to come in large numbers), icicle (a thin, hanging piece of ice).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
