The Yangtze River is the longest river in China and the third longest waterway in the world. We travel along one of the most picturesque sections of the river where over millions of years it has carved its way through the surrounding mountains creating these uniquely beautiful gorges now named the Three Gorges. Over the next three days we will have the opportunity to view the dramatic scenery from both sides of our comfortable 4-star boat. Along the banks of the Yangtze River high peaks tower above us from both sides, in some sections, exposing huge cliffs and dramatically perched temples. Waterfalls spray mist over the river creating a mystical feeling as we meander along.
During the cruise and included in your trip cost, you will visit:
• DAY 2 at 16:00 - 18:30
A shore excursion to The Shibaozhai Temple. Known as “The Treasure Stone Stronghold”
• DAY 3 at 12:30 - 17:00
We change boats for an afternoon excursion to either the river tributary of Shen Nv Stream, known as “The Goddess Stream" or Shen Nong Stream. Both are equally impressive.
There are two optional land excursions (which are at your own expense and are payable locally) during cruising days should you be interested. These are subject participant numbers on board being adequate hence we cannot include them pre trip as numbers of those interested locally will not be known until on board.

Day 3: White Emperor City. 07:00 - 09:30
Or, you may choose to relax on board and take in the majesty of the area.
Accommodation aboard our boat is in private twin share cabins. All meals on board are included.
