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.
