A tour of the gorge is well worth it. We did our tour via Yichang Shunda International Traver and booked it in Yichang.

“Rate 4 not for the scenary, but for the antropological experience!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2012

The 3 big gorges in themselves are, I am sorry to say not stunning and also a it boaring. It is said this is because of the Dam that made the water stream higher and thus the gorges overall "lower", anywy 3 days of that is too much. But there is a "but": I decided to go with a "chinese only" tour operator and the cruise in itself was most of the fan. Traditional local cruises are different than what I would have expected, packed with activities and an extremely good chance to communicate with internal tourists that are extremely welcoming and open toward international "guests"!

“Beautiful boat ride through scenry unlike anything else you've ever seen.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2012

Beautiful boat ride, the hills plunging almost straight down into the river, and their very unusual shape, all completely covered in vegetation, with a little mist is just spectacular. You won't see anything like this anywhere else.

“A relaxing journey near the end of an extraordinary visit.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2012

The three gorges are the narrower passages through which the river flows, often flanked by higher mountain tops than the regions between the gorges. Along the way you see mountain tops, pagodas, towns, walkways, bridges. If the skies are not misted over, you can enjoy every minute but be prepared for overcast. Take the journey in the smaller boats through the Little Three Gorges where the tributaries are feeding the big river.

The valley must have been extraordinary before it was filled with water but few of us would have been fit enough to traverse it on foot.
