  • The Three Gorges

    With Baidi City, Fengjie in the Sichuan province to the west end and Nanjin Pass of Yichang in the Hubei province at the east, the Three Gorges, Qutang, Wu and Xiling, total 192 km in length. The Qutang Gorge, known for its magnificence, is only 8 km long. Wu Gorge, 44 km long, is famed for its deep valley and quiet beauty. Among the twelve peaks, the Goddess Peak is the most exquisite. Xiling Gorge, extending 66 km in length and full of turbulent currents and whirlpools, is one of the most dangerous shoals.

  • Zigui

    Zigui is located at the exit of Xiling Gorge, near which Xiangxi (Fragrant stream) joins the Yangtze River. There erected a tomb and a memorial pavilion for Qu Yuan, a great patriotic poet in ancient China. One may take a dragon boat in the Fragrant Stream and see the native town of Wang Zhaojun, a famous beauty in ancient Chinese history.

  • Lesser Three Gorges

    The lesser Three Gorges, referring to the three separate valleys of the Daning River, are respectively called "Dragon-Gate Gorge", "Misty Gorge" and "Emerald Gorge". With clear water flowing fast through the gorges, and precipices and peaks towering to the sky, you can take a small junk to enjoy these extremely marvellous spectacles of nature.
