The Underwater Lost City Shicheng, China #WonderWednesday

There are gazillion of things that have amazed me in just 22years but I tell you guys, this place gives me mixed feelings of creepiness and total wonder. I present to you, The Underwater Lost city. Fifty-seven years ago, the Xin’an River Hydropower Station trapped the 1,300-year-old Chinese city of Shicheng (Lions City) under water. It was named Lion City after 5 Lion Mountain risen largely behind it. It is truly an astonishing sight. The city stands preserved from destructive forces of erosion, like sun, wind and rain, beneath the Qiandao Lake, so it were almost untouched and managed to stay in pretty good condition. Archeologists call it a “virtual time capsule”, but if you wanna open it, you’ll have to get some scuba gear.

so, I’ll stop here and allow you go quench your thirst. I love you guys.
