For tourists who want to escape the summer heat, the Ice Cave in Ningwu county, Shanxi province, is an ideal destination. At an altitude of 2,300 meters above sea level, the cave is located in Chunjingwa village some 50 kilometers to the west of the county seat. Researchers from the Institute of Geology and Geophysics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences asserted that the cave was formed some 3 million years ago during the Quaternary Glacial period. It became a national geopark in 2005 and was rated as a 4A tourist destination by the nation's tourism authorities in 2011.
