The Three Gorges region is a scenic area along the Yangtze River.

The Three Gorges region has a total length of approximately 200 kilometres (120 mi).

Covering the area from the upriver cities of Fengjie and Yichang downstream to Hubei province.

While the area is still beautiful, it was significant affected by the Three Gorges Dam, the world’s largest, completed in 2006. The dam itself is worth visiting, if only to see its enormous scale.

Overall Atmosphere: Combination
Combination Atmosphere destinations combine elements of both cultural and natural destinations, where this combination is itself essential to the travel experience. Common examples are Archaeological Sites (where culture is usually experienced outdoors), Scenic Local Markets (where indigenous cultures interact outdoors), Hotsprings and Vineyard Areas (where nature provides the raw materials but humans create the surroundings), and Unique Cultural Landscapes (where humans and nature interact in innovative ways, as in the elaborate rice terracing systems of Asia).

Combination Interests typically fall somewhere in the middle of the three types of primary interests in terms of
(a) how climate-dependent they are
(b) how accessible and physically demanding they are.
Featuring both cultural and natural attractions.

Unusual Local Feature

Three Gorges Dam

The Three Gorges Dam is the largest dam in the world. The Three Gorges Dam was constructed at a place called Sāndòupíng in the middle of the Xiling Gorge. The reservoir dam was completed in the summer of 2006, and the water level quickly reached the maximum level of 110m above the downstream river. The dam and Three Gorges Reservoir has had a massive (and highly controversial) impact upon the region's ecology and people, involving the mass relocation of towns and villages.
Boat Tours

Yangtze River Cruises

There are many Yangtze cruises sailing between Yichang and Chongqing lasting three nights downstream and four nights upstream. The cruise fare usually includes shore excursions (Fengdu, Shennong Stream/Lesser Three Gorges, Three Gorges Dam) and all meals on-board the ship except the dinner of the check-in day.

Unusual Local Feature
Scenic River Gorges
Geologic Formations
The Three Gorges have been a famous scenic area for centuries. The higher water level resulting from the dam has changed the scener, so that the river is wider and the mountains appear lower. However, the mountains still tower above the river, and the gorges continue to offer spectacular views of the surrounding cliffs.
