What an amazing experience! We were lucky to go out on the cruise in a misty (and hence very moody) morning and arrived at the gorge around 1pm. They are truly spectacular! A funny photo I took showed the roped off stairs and guides leading you to the new escalators up the hill to the viewing area.

Our 4 day Yangtze River cruise on the Century Sun from Yichang to Chongqing began by sailing upstream through Xiling Gorge. Our tour of the Three Gorges Dam site during the day and going through the lock system at night was the highlight of our 4 day trip. Three Gorges Dam is the largest hydroelectric dam in the world ...... More

This thing is a thing of beauty... not as commercial as the Hoover dam but much larger and more impressive in size! How can anyone tame the Yangtzee?! :-)

Despite some of the historical sites are now submerged under water, the three gorges of Yangtze River is a must-see. We took a river cruise up stream from Yichang on board the Yangtze Gold 8, a new river boat newly launched in about one year ago. The second full day of the cruise is the best as you got the... More

The three gorges is the result of millions of years of erosion. The Yangtze river has been cutting its way through the Wushan mountains to form these gorgeous three gorges. It is best appreciated while cruising from Yichang to Chongquing or vice versa. The magical scenery around is just charming where man, nature and animals seem to be in complete... More

The 3 gorges as seen from a cruise are very dramatic, and the landscape is very unique. Best seen via a river cruise, not sure how one can see these by going to some small villages on the banks of the river. If you do go to China, try to incorporate a river cruise-downstream is usually three days and upstream... More

Viewed largely from a river cruise vessel, stunning mountains and villages, a peek into the simple lives of Chinese farmers and villagers.

we sailed on the brand new President No.7 (maiden voyage was April 2013) and upgraded to a deluxe suite with balcony (well worth the money....regular balcony cabins were closets). Beautiful ship with grand dining room, all purpose entertainment lounge with bar and good observation decks. English speaking shipboard tour guide, Alice, was a real delight....taught me how to play Mahjong.... More

If you sail to the Three Gorges from Yichang organise the boat yourself when you get there. It's not expensive and I think more fun if you are on a boat full of local people rather than an excursion full of Brits and Americans.
