Transfer to the pier for embarkation on your Victoria Yangtze River Cruise. Cruising begins this evening on departure from Chongqing. (D)
Take a shore excursion to Shibaozhai, with its impressive wooden pagoda, appropriately named “The Pearl of the Yangtze”. Depending on river conditions, an alternate excursion may be substituted to Fengdu, visiting the new relocation village built for families who have moved as a result of the Yangtze’s rising waters brought about by the Three Gorges Dam. (B)(L)(D)
Enter the Three Gorges, one of nature’s most extraordinary sculptures. Today you will pass through the first two—Qutang Gorge and Wu Gorge. Qutang Gorge is the shortest, narrowest and most dramatic. The Wu Gorge is known for its quiet beauty, forest-covered mountains and cliffs so sheer that the sun barely penetrates the precipices. Transfer to another vessel for a relaxing excursion through the attractive gorges of Goddess Stream. Depending on river conditions, an alternate excursion may be substituted to the gorges of Shennong Stream. Enter Xiling Gorge, the longest and the deepest of the Three Gorges. In the evening, sail through the Three Gorges Dam ship locks. (B)(L)(D)
This morning’s shore excursion is to the immense project of the Three Gorges Dam. Learn about the construction of this engineering feat before your cruise concludes in Yichang at midday. Transfer to either the airport or your hotel. (B)
NOTE The cruise itinerary also operates in reverse as 5 Days/4 Nights. An 8 Day/7 Night cruise Chongqing to Chongqing is also available.
