Thousand Island Lake — Pearls on Water and Mysterious Millennial Cities Under Water 

Thousand Island Lake is a big lake (982 square kilometers) with 1078 scattered islands (about 600-1000 meters high on average). All the islands are connected to the lake by golden belts.

 

Each island has different specialties, such as special animals or plants, historical buildings, attractive natural beauties, local Chinese cultural museums, or activities (like lock culture in the Moonlight Island).

 

Tomb groups and heritage sites (including an underwater ancient city with more than 1000 years history) from different periods in the history of China (the earliest is neolithic) are located there as well.

 

Now, one of the millennial underwater cities was copied and cloned on land, as a cultural tourism destination.
