Why can’t you step on the water in Jiuzhaigou?

The scenic spot has responded

As for why Jiuzhaigou can’t step on the beach and shoot underwater, the Jiuzhaigou Administration once explained in 2017. Because Jiuzhaigou is mainly a waterscape travertine landscape, man-made objects entering the water body will cause irreversible damage to the travertine and cannot be repaired naturally. The lake (Haizi) in Jiuzhaigou is of oligotrophic water quality and the water body is very sensitive. The entry of man-made objects into the water body will make the water body eutrophic, resulting in the proliferation of algae and the swamp of the water body.
