#Dam, #Water Body, #Must See
Experience the engineering wonder of Three Gorges Dam Project, the largest hydroelectric dam in the world. Completed in 2015, the massive gravity dam sits on the Yangtze River and boasts a length of 2,335 m (7,661 ft). Although monumental, the project to build this dam was not without controversy, as several sites were flooded and more than a million people displaced during construction. Nevertheless, the gargantuan structure attracts visitors from all over the world, who flock to marvel at its sheer size and power.
