The Yangtze or Yangzi is the longest river in Asia, the third-longest in the world and the longest in the world to flow entirely within one country. It rises at Jari Hill in the Tanggula Mountains (Tibetan Plateau) and flows 6,300 km (3,900 mi) in a generally easterly direction to the East China Sea. Its drainage basin comprises one-fifth of the land area of China, and is home to nearly one-third of the country's population.
A Yangtze cruise is the only way to experience the legendary Yangtze River. Your river cruise will take you through a variety of beautiful areas in the region, giving you a closer look at the many faces of China.
The most dramatic part of the River is the Three Gorges region.The three larger gorges on the Yangtze are the Qutang Gorge, the shortest and narrowest of the three with the most spectacular scenery; the Wu (Witches) Gorge, noted for its magnificent lush green mountains frequently shrouded in mist, and the Xiling Gorge, at 47 miles the longest of the three, with narrow, precipitous cliffs. The Three Gorges experience on your Yangtze cruise also includes a tour of the immense Three Gorges Dam project site and museum.
