Shi Cheng, China’s Atlantis

Built over 1300 years ago, the city of Shi Cheng (“Lion City”) is only accessible by experienced divers.

In order to create a lake for the Xin’an River Dam project in 1959, the valley was deliberately flooded. Located 400 km south of Shanghai, the ruins of the ancient city remain in the bottom of Qiandao Lake.
