Helan Qing Xue, literally Sunshine and Snow on Helan Mountains, is so named because the mountain was covered with heavy white snow even in June of summer season and shone with dazzling brilliance under the sunshine and blue sky. Unfortunately, this extraordinary sight has been halted for several decades due to the global warming.
