I will start with a picture of the entrance to the Ice Palace. It is located at around 3810 meters above see level. The entrance is rounded, like a tube, and takes you under the ground. As you can see, the architecture it is more functional than esthetic.

On this picture you can see the tunnel from the inner side. The first part is not as nice as it could be, but when you get lower towards the blue light the nice things arise.

The palace was built several meters below the surface in the glacier. On this particular picture you can see the second part of the entrance tunnel, which has blue back lighting.

The walls and the ceiling look tremendous and the whole place has beautiful atmosphere. It is also pretty cold inside. From the outside, the entrance, it did not look fancy. One would never think what treasures are hidden inside!

It took me around two hours to satisfy my photo-appetite in this beautiful ice palace! All photographs were taken without flash and with long exposures. This makes the ice glow as you can see on this stalagmite.

Their intention was to have various ambient light color in different sections of the ice cave. I think in the end it was a good idea and makes the palace charming!

The last photo is a sparkling icy ceiling. I hope you enjoyed this Ice Palace section as much as the other galleries and you will have time to visit this fantastic high-altitude sensation on your own.
