The Yangtze River


Yangtze River is the largest in China and the third largest in the world with a length of 3,915 miles. Stretching from a land of remote mountains and arid plains in Tibet, it winds its way through canyon gorges to fertile regions of connecting lakes and waterways. The Yangtze’s gorges are the highlights on the river’s course. And of course there is the Three Gorges Dam, the largest dam and hydroelectric power plant in the world.

  1. To feel the energy of the river at a gorge or f.ex at the Tiger’s Leap is something beyond description!
    And if I may add a suggestion, if anyone happens to visit that part of the world and continues to Tibet ,don’t miss the trip with The Himalayan train from Lhasa to Shanghai. You can’t put a price to the experience of having marvelous landscape before your eyes as you lie down at your compartment…

  2. Gorgeous indeed ! Which raises the question : Do I need such an impressive landscape to get a strong emotion ? Or can I live the same emotion in the low dunes or in a flat country ? Many thanks eMORPHES !
