The Frozen Beauty of Montmorency Falls

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.
