A close look! Fantastic

I was traveling a large cruise line down the Yangtze River. It was a refreshing change to transfer to a steam boat then a row boat to get a very close look.

We went on the Shennong Stream as part of our Cruise up the Yangtze River. We enjoyed this trip in a smaller boat, although we didn't get the opportunity to go in a rowing boat mentioned in some reviews. We struggled to see the hanging coffins, but managed it in the end, perhaps it's worth looking them up in advance... More

We cruised up the Shennong Stream on an excursion from the Century Legend, part of an Avalon Waterways tour through China. Our local guide from the Tujian ethnic minority was very good, although at times it was difficult to hear her English presentation on the top deck of the excursion boat. We learned about the people who lived/had lived along... More

A trip up the Shennong Stream was included as an excursion from our cruise ship. Starting in a medium size ferry, you then transfer to small, shallow boats rowed by 4 or 5 oarsmen from the local Tujia ethnic minority. The scenery is stunning. Do take some money for the gift shop at the ferry transfer point, as money spent... More

The trip up and back the Shennong Stream to see the ancient minority culture was very nice. A ferry ride that was fast enough to make good time, yet slow enough to take pictures was enjoyable, especially having the wind bathe over us on a hot, hot day. The trip was included in our cruise cost and was well worth... More

Visited last May. After two boat changes we were seated in the long shallow boats to travel the Shennong stream pulled by boatmen - against the current! We passed small caves and waterfalls. Water levels were low and the boatmen literally dragged the boats through. It made for a pretty change.

Our Shennong Stream adventure was an excursion from our Victoria Cruise Line downstream Yangtze River cruise. From our cruise ship we boarded a large wooden vessel which took us on a relaxing journey along some of the smaller tributaries of the Yangtze ,namely the Shennong. On this very relaxing voyage we were privy to beautiful views of the wildlife and... More

The trip up Shennong Stream was excellent. The scenery is beautiful, the gorges are impressive, and the water is beautifully calm and reflective. Also some very interesting hanging coffins and rock formations. However, the visit at the end of the stream was a waste of time. I didn't find it entertaining at all, and the concrete structure that the show... More

Whilst on our cruise down the Yangtse, one of the excursions was to the Shennong Stream, and this was a real good trip, as you go up a quieter part of the river in a sampan, rowed and " pulled " by our boatmen. This was very unusual, as years ago the river used to reduce to less than two... More

We enjoyed a truly amazing excursion off the Yangtze River cruise from Badong to the Shennong Stream. We enjoyed a lovely ferry ride to the Shennong Stream where we were taken in dugout like boats rowed by 5 older standing boat men on a tour of the tributary. The scenery was stunning and the guides were very entertaining.
