This was the first gorge area we went through coming fromWuhan to Chongquing. The scenery is amazing and because the river starts to narrow, you are able to view a lot of various boats using the water for transportation. Very peaceful and tranquil.

The Xiling Gorge is one of the highlights of the three gorges cruise itinerary, but you'll pass through it fairly quickly and I'm not sure 3 days is needed for the couple of hours highlights that Xiling offers. If you're into cruising, I'm sure you'll...More
