According to Mr. Geng Liutong, an expert from the Society, the Wall was not built in the water, but submerged later after the building of the Xishuiyu Reservoir. Similar phenomenon can only be found at the famous Shanhai Pass, but even there, the sight of the Great Wall going in and out of the water at three places in different ways, like what we see here at the Huanghuacheng Great Wall Reserve, is no where to find.
The Lakeside Great Wall Reserve presents visitors with a unique landscape of ˇ°wall in water and water by wallˇ±. Its uniqueness has drawn government attention. It has been reported that Beijing Municipal Government has listed its restoration as a cultural relic protection project for adding humane elements to the Olympic Games 2008. Now, the Lakeside Great Wall Reserve is receiving more and more visitors with each passing day.
