Our Viking tour spent 5 nights on the Yangtze, sailing from Chongqing to Wuhan. We sailed through the stunning Three Gorges & then joined small sailing boats to sail The Lesser Three Gorges. A rather mystical area.

You have to be "into" PRC development to get this. The pictures all show dramatic discharges from the dam, but most days it's very quiet. The 5 stage ship-locks are interesting.

We did a one day tour of the Gourges with Jack plus he set up the boat trip for the George underneath the dam next to the city. He did a very professional job and went out of his way to make it work including buying our next train ticket. His phone in Yi chang is 13343533833 and we would... More

This is a beautiful area along the Yangtze River. It presents just what you have seen in Chinese paintings and images, but way better in person! If you have the opportunity to travel here, do so. You won't regret it!

We sailed through the Three Gorges as part of an Avalon Waterways tour on the Century Legend in October 2014, from Yichang to Chongqing. (Separate review of the ship will be posted.) The scenery is indeed gorgeous and the guides both on the Century Legend and on shore were all positive about the effects of the dam, despite the destruction... More

From our Yangtze River cruise boat we took an excursion to this scenic spot located in the middle of Xiling Gorge. The walk through the area took nearly 3 hours. Our guide, dressed in a costume of her ethnic group, led the walk, gave information and answered questions about the way of life of the ancient cultures who lived in... More

I took the four day three night cruise from Chongqing to Yichang through the Three Gorges. The scenery is absolutely beautiful. The mountains are thick with trees ranging from the deepest green to a lighter green. Some are the rocks formations are bare but have character from the nature carving of the river waters. You would think that after the... More

Our cruise on the Yangtze from Chongqing to Wuhan took us through the Three Gorges, where the scenery was wonderful. The Qutang Gorge towers over the river, with a mix of bare rock faces and densely forested areas, while further through the Gorges, when it widens out, there are grassy strips and cultivation just above the flood line, which was...

Trip is very peaceful as well as interesting, with the bird caves and hanging coffins etc. Fascinating to know that the water is so incredibly deep cutting into the rock as it does. Worth a trip.

We visited the Three Gorges area by tourist ferry and thoroughly enjoyed it. We were a bit skeptical at first about the quality of tour we had chosen (we booked a cheapie at 1000 yuan per person including Lesser Three Gorges excursion) but needn't have worried because the cabin we got (first class) was way above our expectations. Don't be... More
