For cruise fans
Some of the most majestic parts of the Yangtze River lie in the Three Georges Area. And the best way to take it all in is: by cruise.
The Three Gorges refers to: Qutang Gorge, Wu Gorge and Xiling Gorge. Luckily, the city of Yichang in Hubei cradles the Xiling Gorge, the longest, steepest with the most magnificent views among the three.
A lifetime experience by a river cruise through the natural wonders starts from Yichang upstream to Chongqing. Options vary from 3 to 5 days and include offshore tours to Gezhouba Dam, the No.1 dam of the Yangtze and also the world’s biggest hydraulic project, and hiking into Shenlongjia the natural habit of golden monkeys, as well as a visit to Zigui, hometown of the poet Quyuan for a race at the Dragon Boat Festival celebrations.
