Underwater Great Wall at Panjiakou Reservoir



Located about two hours away from Beijing, the Great Wall of China stood for hundreds of years here by the Luan River (Luán Hé, 滦河) until 1977 when the river was dammed and part of the wall became submerged under the newly formed Panjiakou Reservoir (Pānjiākǒu Shuǐkù, 潘家口水库). The trip below the waves is not for every traveler or even every diver—the water is cold and visibility is quite low. Luckily, the above-water ruins of the wall are much more easily accessible.
