This was a great interlude from our cruise along the Yangzte River. The Resort was worth touring to see how the Ba people of this region lived and also to see their Customs. The Wedding Ceremony was great to see especially when the Bride married a tourist. The waterfalls with pristine water plus all the tourist attractions made it an... More

This was a stage managed set to show the old scenes from China. But it did not matter- it is so pretty and charming that I enjoyed it a lot. There is an easy boardwalk to take you up one side of the valley and back down the other. Take your camera - there are lovely scenes everywhere - waterfalls,... More

Visited there recently with husband and bunch of friends. We took 10-1 bus from Yiling Square and it was about 1.5hrs drive to the place.. The bus ticket was for 15rmb. Since we all are students here in Yichang, we had toursit card, which gave us free entry (if no travel card i think you have to pay 180 for... More

Regarding TheTribe of Three Gorges. We paid 280 yuan as an optional tour whilst doing the Yangtze Cruise. We did not see a lot of the things mentioned in the reviews here. We had a very nice boardwalk up to a small waterfall area passing strategically placed props such as a lovely maiden standing on the front of a canoe,... More

First off, if you plan to walk the entire site in June, you will need good shoes, several bottles of water, and to take many breaks. The site farther up the river where the reproduced village is located involves MANY stairs. You can purchase handicrafts at very reasonable prices (Chinese paper cutting, pottery, sandals, homemade candies, etc.) and also see... More

This was one of our favorite excursions on the river cruise. The scenery was beautiful (I especially liked the waterfalls at the end). There were monkeys, lots of people playing historical roles along the river and the wedding ceremony that has been mentioned by other reviewers. There are places to buy handicrafts as well.

This is a scenic area reconstructed allowing tourists to relive the daily life and work of the natives. It is one of the optional tours from our Yangtze River cruise at RMB220 (for seniors). A covered board walk takes you to the scenic gorge, where you can see fishing boats along the river side, fishermen using bird to catch fishes,... More

This was our first optional tour from our cruise up the Yangtze River and it was a lovely one. We were met by a beautiful guide from the "Three Gorges Tribe Tour" and taken along a covered in board walk, from the ship, to a very scenic gorge with a stream running through it to the Yangtze River. The board... More

Bitterly cold winters day didn't take anything away from a magical place. Just stunningly beautiful. Take the cable car up to the top but be prepared for the long walk down through all the scenic spots..... Never ending stairs. But don't let that put you off. Magical!
