Parts of this gorge was reminiscent of an Alaskan Cruise. Very large mountains with shear cliffs. Seeing the locals fish and live on the banks was real cool as well. If you go to... read more

Cruised down the Three Gorges on a three night cruise from Chongquing to Yichang. To be honest, we went to Jiuzhaigao before hand which was simply stunning mountainous scenery and far more up close and personal with the locals. This was great, but set the bar high for the Three Gorges. The most spectacular part of the Gorges came on... More

You could say that the three gorges is just that. There is nothing astoundingly picturesque about them. If you had seen one, you had seen 'em all. I believe that the three gorges is a selling point for the Yangtze River cruises. When we recall that our cruise itself was forgettable, the three gorges did little to add value to... More

Great picture opts. Our smalls boat tour put us on small open air boats. The boat takes inland as far as it goes, then back again. We had great sun... and green, really green vegetation.

The actual scenery of the three gorges, and even more so the Lesser Three Gorges is simply stunning. If you're doing a full cruise though just check that your ship is going to make stops at the right places etc.

Our cruise ship entered last of the Three Gorges .The Xiling Gorge stretches from Zigui to Nanjin Pass..It is the longest with 66km in length. We were on the sundeck before the captain's announcement , to view the biggest gorge on the Yangzi.It is surrounded by four smaller gorges. In the past ,many boats were capsized due to the rapid...

Spectacular views and so worth seeing on the cruise. The days we were cruising it was very hazy and we did not see the sun or the sky.

This was our third time cruising the Yangtze River and the Three Gorges is still incredibly beautiful! Our last two times were on Victoria Cruises and this time on the Sinorama Gold 8 which added to the enjoyment of the cruise. Will never get tired of the scenery and visiting the different ports.

A major highlight of our Yangtze river cruise (4 nights) to cruise through Xiling Gorge, the longest and deepest of the 3 Gorges; Wu Gorge and Qutang Gorge (the shortest and narrowest of the 3 Gorges). Views on the top open air boat deck were fantastic as the weather was good throughout our 3 days of cruising.
