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 entry excluding ferry ride) to the place. Just had to take 30rmb ticket for the ferry ride back & forth.
If you are going there its better to go real early in the morning so you could explore the whole place and also you could take the last bus back to city which is at 5 or 5.30. Or else you have to hire a vehile which would most probably be above 150rmb.
Totally worth going. Going up the stairs all the way to temple is tiring. but once you get there the view is awesome. scenery at san xia ren jia is so beautiful. its a lovely hangout.
Better pack a bag and go coz food and even small water bottle is 3 times expensive there.
we had a wonderful time there. looking forward to go again :)

I liked the Day Tour that we took with our English speaking tour guide to this venue.

Things we got to see:
The actual village where the Ba Tribes people once lived and the Ba King's ancient palace which you have to hike up to. So don't go in the heat of summer - this is a place you visit in Autumn or Spring.

2. On the way up via hike - you get shown coffins wedged into a hillside cliff and you see how the Ba people buried their dead.

3. The Ba village no longer exists in reality but expect a staged version of local tribes people washing their clothes by the river, fishing, making crafts and sweets like their local candy which you can buy.

4. There is some shopping - not too expensive for trinkets and local delicacies (not a rip off so was ok)

5. There was a funny staging of a local wedding in the heart of the village - the bride and her family cry (or rather sing songs) as she departs to join her groom in his new hometown. A member of the audience is chosen as the unsuspecting male groom. Quite funny and entertaining.

6. Great views of the Xiling gorge on the hike.

So disappointed by this so called beautiful destination. Save your money unless you have nothing better to spend it on. We paid for an optional tour to see this place and the glossy brochure portrays it as a peaceful village. Well it was none of those. Hordes of chinese tourists who obviosly live in a fantasy land loved the poor woman standing on a boat in a little lake singing while off to one side of the lake a man played a flute ( corny beyond belief) from here you follow a path along a stream with other staged sights and then a chinese show of local school girls began. We were off like rockets. It was all too phoney for us but if you like this kind of stuff give it a go. The best part of this experience was walking back downstream with no one around. The actors rested. The peace was lovely, we had left the few hundred back at the show. The location minus the people was lovely but i would not recommend this activity. There are toilets at the entrance of the site and a small shop for water or an icecream in the heat. Not at all wheelchair friendly (if you find this review helpful please tick the box tks )

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 walk went along both sides of the river, so you had some great views. The tribe had set everything up along the way from, fishing boats, nets hanging from trees, a small village, bridges, waterwheels, there were monkeys on the cliff edge and much more. The tribe all wore colourful traditional clothing and were posed in many different positions throughout the valley.
At one stage they even had a wedding ceremony, involving one of the tourists.
This was a great tour, one that I would definitely recommend, you will take lots of photos, that's guaranteed.
It does get very crowded and take water.

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!

Went there on a sunny day and must say the setting is really beautiful. Not cheap but very nice scenery and village. Plenty of shows (in chinese). Locals are friendly and the place is quite big.
However, need to speak chinese, at least a bit to visit there, otherwise I think it would be hard to understand the shows and follow the directions.

I absolutely loved that area!Yes you are ripped off by having to pay for a cart driving you 5min away on top of the entry fee (not cheap by Chinese standards) but it's a small price to pay for being able to see a stunning waterfall and mountains! It wasn't too crowded when I went, but I can imagine it being..tight..during national holidays. It took us about an hour to get there from Yichang. Bring your own raincoat/jacket and water(proof) shoes as you'll need them to walk behind the waterfall!Otherwise you'll have to fork out 10rmb for a single-use raincoat sold by numerous vendors and will ruin your normal shoes as it can be extremely wet and slippery there.The views were magnificent!

the original villages were all submerged. but to lure you into one of those small boat excursions, they hire and plot pseudo actors to pose on assigned spot just for show. also what is annoying is the "moderator" on the boat. if you do not understand chinese then you may get bothered less. but i do, so i knew 90% of time he was yelling to his loud speaker asking you to give them "tip"! smh

As an extra trip on our Yangtze cruise, took a side trip up the Goddess Stream gorge. We transferred to a smaller boat, and went several kilometers up the steep gorge. At the final spot, the gorge was less than 30 meters wide. With incredible cliffs rising hundreds of meters from the water's edge, the scenery was amazing! Highly recommend not missing this.
