Xiling Gorge is the most eastern, ie the most downstream, of the three gorges passed through on a Yangtze River Three Gorges Cruise. This gorge is located between the Yichang dam (Gezhouba) and the main Three Gorges dam. Of the three gorges viewed on this cruise I feel that the Xiling gorge is the least spectacular, it is however the... More

This was included as a side trip on my second trip downriver from Chongqing to Yichang. We disembarked from the steamer into scull-like boats that were alternately pushed by pole and pulled by rope by ethnic natives wearing nothing more than the barest of loin cloths. It was very interesting and gave us a view of ethnic China that tourists... More

The scenery is the only thing going for the trip. We were dropped off here first thing and boarded the ship, which was clean. However the lack of seating was atrocious. There were plenty of seats in general, however you had to pay nearly 300 yuan for a seat if the very minimal number of benches were taken by seat... More

The Xiling Gorge is one of the highlights of the three gorges cruise itinerary, but you'll pass through it fairly quickly and I'm not sure 3 days is needed for the couple of hours highlights that Xiling offers. If you're into cruising, I'm sure you'll love it. If you just want to see the gorge, arrange an excursion tour for... More

I took a 5 day Yangtze river cruise and started from Yichang and this was the first gorge we came to. The scenery is amazingly beautiful. There can be some fog but as you get further along it dissipates. I highly recommend seeing this be prepared to take a lot of pictures

We took a 1 day "Two dams & Xiling Gorge" cruise from Yichang. All the cruises and dam visits are controlled by a listed Hubei company and therefore all the tour fees from any agents in Yichang are uniformed. We booked the tour a day ahead and arrived at the harbour in the early morning. Being a public holiday in... More

This trip was an Optional extra on our Yangtze River 4 nights cruise. It turned out to be spectacular and we were very glad we decided to do this. The scenic views are fantastic. See attached photos for the proof.

This was the beginning of our cruise and although there was a heavy mist the scenery was still beautiful. A variety of boats/ships can be seen too. I particularly liked the old traditional ones

Exactly what it says on the tin, a lovely sail down the river with beautiful scenery on both sides of the boat. Service was lovely and a nice leisurely morning out

The scenic area is mesmerizing and a boat ride in this stream would present you with a breathtaking scenery. But if it is possible, try to go there where there is clear sky or at least its not raining to enjoy the actual beauty of the place.
