Itinerary 1-B: Yichang to Chongqing
Day 1

Destination:Yichang

Highlights: Get aboard on this day

9:00 pm Depart from Yichang

Yichang City is located at the west of China's Hubei Province, where the middle and upper reaches of the Yangtze River are divided. For a very long time, it has been renowned as "Gateway to the Three Gorges". Today, as well as a cultural and tourist city in China, Yichang remains a brisk river port of China, controlling the access to Chongqing City to its southwest.

Day 2

Destination:Three Gorges

Highlights: Three Gorges Dam site

.Morning visit Three Gorges Dam site, which is 27 miles upstream from Yichang City, 38km upstream from the Gezhouba Dam Lock, inside the third of the Three Gorges. The height of the Three Gorges Dam will be 185 meters. All 26 generators will be put into operation. The project is scheduled for completion in year 2009.

.Xiling Gorge is the last of the Three Gorges on the Yangtze. The whole Gorge area is covered with high mountains, gullies, dangerous shoals and hidden reefs of various sizes. The best-known perilous shoal is Qing Shoal. Ships go downstream over the shoal at an arrow speed, but up the shoal it's as difficult as climbing a steep hill.

Day 3

Destination:Three Gorges

Highlights:Qutang Gorg

Wu Gorge
Small Gorges or Shennong Stream

.Qutang Gorges is the first of the Three Gorges on the Yangtze River. With vertical cliffs of some thousand meters high as its two flanks, the Qutang Gorge is only a few dozens of meters wide just like a narrow gateway.

.Wu Gorge is gifted with exquisite peaks and lush mountains and ranges. It's deep and serene with changeable weather. The rolling River twists and turns and boats zigzag their way along, as if cruising in a fantastic gallery.

.Shennong Stream, a tributary of the Yangtze River, rises in the southern part of Shennongjia Natural Reserve. With crystal clear steam flows swiftly from north to south through deep gorges, a sampan tour will allow you to experience a speedy adventure.

Day 4

Destination:Three Gorges

Highlights:Ghost City or Shibaozhai

Fengdu is where the devil lives, according to Chinese legend. They say that spirits go to heaven, and evil goes to Fengdu. The town is overlooked by Ming Shan Hill, home of Tianzi, the King of the Dead.

.Shibaozhai Stone is 52 km away from Wanxian, simply a rectangular rock with sheer cliffs, standing on the riverside. From afar, the protruding 220-meter (720 foot) hill on the north bank can appear to resemble a jade seal, and is so named.

.Wanxian is a small mountainous city known as the gate way to East Sichan. The city's silk-spinning and weaving industries are well known in the Yangtze Gorges region.
