Our home galaxy, The Milky Way and our neighbour, The Andromeda Galaxy, shines in the starry sky of the World Heritage site of Mount Siguniang of China. Being one of the biggest icefalls in the area(height:50m; wildth 20m), it gets frozen up from November to May, making itself the paradise for ice climbers country-wide.
