The resort is maintained to get tourists dollars - in a good way. I really like how it wasn't over crowded with tourists. It looks exactly like the photos have uploaded. I wouldn't recommend you come here if it was raining. Nor would I recommend you eat here.

During our Yangtze river cruise (4 nights), this was an Optional excursion called "Tribe of the Three Gorges". In the brochure, it was stated ".... a unique geology embedded with ancient Ba and Chu culture, together with Tujia ethnic minority ..... " It was a fantastic excursion lasting for 3 hours to walk along pathways to admire the lovely scenery... More

we left our cruise vessel onto a smaller vessel to go down the narrower river and off that vessel we got onto the smaller rowing boat, rowers worked hard and sang us songs as we bumbled through the beautiful scenary, all in all a lovely morning trip

We saw this village from our Sinorama Gold 8 cruise ship. It looks very attractive and hugs the side of the bank of the river. It is in a very attractive part of the gorge not very far from the 3 Gorges Dam but feels very far removed from this.

This is about as close to “old China” as you’re likely to get on a Yangtze River cruise. A tranquil area that seems untouched by time, it was once a small fishing village but now operates like a living museum showing how people of the Tujia minority lived 70-plus years ago. As you walk up one bank of the scenic... More

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
