Following the discovery of the Gangkar Ice Cave in March 2023, a new double-layered ice cave has recently been discovered near the Phayum Second Village in Penba county of the Xizang autonomous region. The latest cave is a short 15km from the previous discovery.

According to preliminary surveys, the new cave is massive, measuring 300 meters long. The cave's entrance is roughly 12 meters tall and 8 meters wide. The interior of the ice cave forms an upward spiral.

Walking through the cave gives the impression of navigating a crystal palace surrounded by pristine ice formations.
