Yangtze Three Little Gorges
|More Three Little Gorges Photos|
When the cruise ship reaches Wu Gorge, the vale of Daning River is within sight. Scenery along the Daning River is elegantly stunning with beautiful peaks, dangerous shoals and unusual stones. The Three Little Gorges, with their combination of natural scenery and historic relics, are the highlight of Daning River scenery. Drifting along the gorges by sitting in a rubber dinghy can add an extra dimension to the trip.

to visit Three Little Gorges.
Drifting six miles upstream from the Emerald Gorge, the Dachang Ancient Town has over 1,700 years' history. It is the first large town along the bank of Daning River. The ancient architecture, dock and arches (Paifang) of Ming and Qing Dynasties always tell people the history of the town.
The Three Little Gorges, regarded as a bright pearl of the Yangtze River, offer townspeople a chance to experience another way of life which is calm, natural and simple.

If you are in Chongqing, I am afraid that you can not finish this trip within a day. You know, you need to take long distance bus from Chongqing Longtousi Bus Station to Wushan County first. It takes around 5 hours. The bus fare is around CNY179. A round-trip bus tour needs 10 hours. So you need to spare two days if you go there from Chongqing.
