Day 2: Chongqing - Yangtze & Three Gorges

Spend the day at leisure before bording our exciting Yangtze River cruise. Whilst cruising, shore excursions are offered at no additional expense to mythical Fengdu - ‘Ghost City’ and Shennong stream, with its unique scenery and four natural gorges. Drift serenely along the stream in small, open ‘pea pod boats’, looking out upon lush greenery, jagged peaks and ancient villages of the Tujia people - one of the local ethnic minorities.

Day 3: Yangtze & Three Gorges

Good morning from the River Yangtze! At 6340km in length, the Yangtze is the 3rd longest river in the world, neatly dividing China into north and south and wending its way through eight very different provinces. The Gorges are a breathtaking sight!

Day 4: Yangtze & Three Gorges

The first gorge we pass, Qutangxia Gorge is the shortest and narrowest yet the most impressive. Here, the dramatic 1200m limestone peaks are often shrouded in mist and the river shoots through the narrow entrance with great haste. Next comes Wuxia Gorge, which straddles Sichuan and Hubei Provinces. Lined by twelve sheer peaks, Wuxia offers an spectacular vista for some 45km.

Day 5: Yangtze & Three Gorges - Wuhan

During our cruise, we’ll also sail through the new ship locks of the impressive Three Gorges Dam construction. Finally is Xiling Gorge, the longest at 75km and which comprises seven smaller gorges. Disembarking from our cruise after lunch we have a long afternoon of travel ahead of us driving to Wuhan (approx 4 hours).

Day 6: Wuhan
