Yangtze River Cruise Tour

The third longest river in the world, the Yangtze River winds its way from the‘Roof of the World’ – the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau – all the way to the East China Sea nearly 6380 km away. While crossing the eastern edge of the Sichuan Basin, the majesticYangtze splitsat the towering mountain to form the Three Gorges, a stunning sight. Here, mountains disappear into clouds as the river meanders past villages, resurrecting an ancient civilization.

A river cruise through the Three Gorges is a voyage through time. You pass through natural landscapes and cultural footprints thousands of years old, only to arrive at a modern wonder, the Three Gorges Dam, the largest hydro-electric facility in the world.
