The frozen beauty of Montmorency Falls in Quebec City will never fail to delight your naked eye. In winter, when the city is literally enveloped in inches of snow and in sub zero Celsius, Montmorency Falls, which is higher than the world-famous Niagara Falls, shows its beauty that you would never forget. Believe it or not, visitors get up close—so close you’d be in awe how the power, beauty and danger of nature is rolled into one to create a mesmerizing scenery you’d never tire of snapping photos or selfies–in every angle possible.

I started exploring on this snow-covered hanging bridge.
The Falls is just few meters under my feet.
Looking down can be a scary or can be a really cool experience.
The frozen water looks like stalactites or stalagmites.
It looks dangerous but breathtakingly wonderful.
Which way now? The stairs are buried in snow.
Here’s the view from above. So white, so tiny, so stunning!
These snow mobile riders are taking a break while taking in the view.
Taking the cable car is another option to go down.
You can see the bird’s eye view of the whole frozen paradise. And see some cheesy snow art.
This mound of snow is so pure and so photogenic.
It’s a gorgeous spot for a selfie!
Or a challenging curve to climb!
And a perfect place to slide down!
And when you’re up there, nothing beats the feeling of conquering it like Mt. Everest. 😀
