9-22-14 Three Gorges Dam

Monday - Xiling Gorge, Flight to Shanghai

Sailed downstream through the Xiling Gorge. The longest section of the Three Gorges system is comprised of the Xietan, Qintan and Kongling rapids, known as the "Three Rapids of Xiling". This morning's excursion visits the Three Gorges Dam, the world's largest and most ambitious hydroelectric project ever undertaken by man, nearly six times the size of the Hoover Dam. This project has forever changed the landscape surrounding the Yangze River. Tour the site to see this impressive achievement of engineering. After disembarkation and lunch in Yichang, we flew to cosmopolitan Shanghai, the fastest growing city in Asia, with its dramatic ever-changing skyline.
