Typical Itinerary:
This 3-night, 4-day cruise travels down the Yangtze through the Three Gorges to Yichang. The cruise takes in both the rich cultural heritage of the area, the natural beauty and, at the end, the modern marvel of the Three Gorges Dam.

Chongqing-300x225Day 1 – Chongqing Check-in

Settle in and get comfortable. We board in the evening to allow our guests time to recover from their travels and shift gears into a more relaxed mode. Tomorrow, we’ll start our adventures.


Fengdu-300x225Day 2 – Cultural Heritage

Our first stop is at the Ghost City. This area is sacred to three different religions: Confucianism, Taoism and Buddhism. Revered as a place where the dead transition into another realm, it is surprisingly not dark or cemetery like. Rather, Ghost City is vibrant and colorful, although the local names are a bit scary. Here you will find “Nothing to Be Done Bridge,” “Ghost Torture Pass,” and “River of Blood.”

FengduDespite the names, Fengdu Ghost City is tranquil and spiritually uplifting. From there we will pass the Shibaozhai Temple. This 400 year-old temple was saved from the rising waters and become an island where once it was a hilltop. The temple is built partway into the cliff and no nails or bolts were used in its construction. The day finishes with a sumptuous Captain’s Welcome Dinner.

Shennong-Stream-300x225Day 3 – Qutang and Wu Gorge

Today’s adventures include a side excursion on smaller boats to either the Lesser Three Gorges or up the Shennong River. The Yangtze has carved out scenery here with towering green cliffsides and misty mountains. For centuries, the scenery before you has inspired Chinese paintings and poetry.

Look for the coffins of the Ba people hanging suspended on the cliff faces and marvel at unparalleled natural beauty. Wildlife, including monkeys and the famous giant sturgeon are commonly seen. Tonight’s dinner features local cuisine and cultural entertainment.

Three-Gorges-Dam-300x225Day 4 – Three Gorges Dam & Check-out

As we disembark at Maoping Pier, we’ll transferred to the Three Gorges Dam by coach. Here we’ll see one of modern China’s great achievements. The mile wide dam is a stunning monument and an excursion allows you to see the project up close. We will arrive the Yichang city center around 12:30 pm after the Three Gorges Dam excursion.
