A Chinese city, left to ruin after a dam flooded the valley it was situated in, has become a paradise for divers, thanks to an idea from a local tourist official.
The ancient city of Shi Cheng, known as the Lion City, was founded over 1,300 years ago, but it vanished more than half a century ago to make way for a new hydroelectric power station, and a man-made lake.
The once bustling city is now between 85 and 131 feet underwater.
According to a story published in The Huffington Post, Qiu Feng, a local official in charge of tourism, decided to see what remained of the city under the deep waters.
From then on, the craze picked up and now divers are vying to get a look of the ancient treasure buried under water.
Well, 1st picture doesn`t look real to me either but then why do they put it together with the others ?!
