we enjoyed the views of the Yangtze from Yichang to Chongqing for 4 nts. In order we passed through Xiling Gorge, the largest of the three, Wu Gorge and Qutang Gorge. our best views were with Xiling Gorge largely due to the weather. All of them are gorgeous and definitely worth at least a visit if you have enough time... More

The views are just mind blowing but you need to have sunny days to enjoy the breathtaking beauty of the cliffs and the river.

Some of our best and most relaxing days in China were spent in the absolutely stunning Three Gorges along the Yangtze River. The scenery of the gorges has changed a bit since the dam was built: a little less dramatic but still stunning nonetheless and a worthwhile experience while in China. We took a Victoria cruise and were very pleased... More

We travelled the 3 gorges with Viking River Cruises. I have to say that whilst the actual gorges were stunning, no one quite prepared me for how busy the Yangtze river actually is! Hundreds of very large barges carrying 1000s of tons of quarry materials back and forth, car transporters, wood, metal, in fact you name it! The pollution does... More

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
