Around 100 firefighters, including 17 divers were sent to the crash site to perform a rescue mission after the crash, according to the Guizhou fire department on its social media account.
The video footage shows the bus changing lanes behind a grey car before cutting across multiple lanes.
The sharp turn then forces opposing traffic to slow down as the bus crashes through a fence into the reservoir.
It is believed that the students who were on board were returning from their national university entrance exams.
These exams had initially been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Speculation has already begun online as to the reason why the bus plunged into the reservoir.
Some Twitter users have questioned whether there was a fault with the bus or the driver had fallen asleep at the wheel.
No official statement has been made regarding the crash as the investigation is still ongoing.

One concerned Twitter user wrote: “Why did the driver not use the brakes and stop it suddenly?
“This needs to be investigated.
“Something here is wrong.”
While many others simply wished condolences to the friends and family who had lost loved ones in the crash.
