The Yangtze Gorges
The Three Gorges
From the walls of Baidi high in the coloured dawn
To Jiangling by night-fall is three hundred miles,
Yet monkeys are still calling on both banks behind me
To my boat these ten thousand mountains away.
The Three Gorges, the most spectacular section of the Yangtze River, are filled with breathtaking sceneries.
With Baidi City, Fengjie in Chongqing Municipality to the west end and Nanjin Pass of Yichang in the Hubei province at the east, the Three Gorges, Qutang, Wu and Xiling, total 192 km in length.
The Yangtze River is home to some of China's most spectacular natural scenery, a series of canyons known as the Three Gorges
China's biggest construction project since the Great Wall
The Chinese government is constructing the Three Gorges Dam on the Yangtze River near the city of Yichang. When the dam is completed early in the 21st century, a huge lake will form behind it, raising the level of the river upstream and submerging more than 100 towns.
The dangerous navigation channel will then be submerged in a placid lake.
We provide discount Yangtze river cruises of over 40 ships including 5-star luxury East Queen which Bill Gates chose to take, very famous deluxe Victoria Cruises, smaller but clean and comfortable Yuxiang and even budget local ferry boats which native residents take as daily transport vessels.
