Yesterday morning I woke around 6am in our Chengdu apartment opened the windows and saw something I have never seen before in Chengdu. I could actually see Xi Ling Snow Mountain looking towards the North West from near Wanda plaza on the 2nd ring road. You could actually see the snow on top of the mountains with your naked eye. My father in law told me that when he was younger you could see it everyday, but with the rise in pollution over the last twenty years it maybe happens only a couple of times a year if your lucky.
The picture quality is not so good as I was using my phone. The other pic was from a Chengdu website.
