Qiandao lake is a man-made fresh water lake formed in 1957 when the local government completed the Xin’an River Hydroelectric Station. Some 1,377 villages were flooded, including ancient cities, some of which remain preserved in the depths of the lake. There are currently 1078 larger islands in the lake with a number of smaller ones scattered around, making for some great scenery.
