Mount Fansipan, the highest peak of Vietnam, was covered with frost as local temperatures were under zero degrees Celsius on Monday morning.
A thin layer of frost blanketed the road leading to the Fansipan summit in Lao Cai Province, northern Vietnam and nearby trees.
When temperatures rose, the frost disappeared gradually.
This was the first frost on Mount Fansipan this year.
The phenomenon was expected to return as temperatures may drop on Monday night.

The cold air in this year’s winter is forecast to be weaker than that in previous years, according to the National Center for Hydro-Meteorological Forecasting.
The chilly weather may occur later than in previous years and the number of severely cold days was predicted to be fewer than average.
However, locals should still take notice of cold waves in the coming time.
