Three Gorges, China

(4/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
Cruise the surreal landscape of mountains and deep rivers at Three Gorges. Boat tours glide through the limestone gorges covered in mist and fog, and you can see picturesque wooden temples and pagodas peeking out from behind the lush forest. Each gorge--Qutang, Wu, and Xiling--offers dream-like vistas of steep cliffs and small waterfalls dripping from their misty tops. Check out the multitude of caves; the ancient Ba people of the area would bury their beloved in hanging coffins up in these cliffside caves. Arranged cruises take up to couple of days, with the boats providing comfortable rooms, usually decorated in an Eastern style. Take a look at our Wushan County vacation planner to schedule your visit to Three Gorges and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.
