The longest river in Asia and the third longest in the world at more than 3,915 miles, the Yangtze river flows from the Tibetan Plateau in the west to the East China Sea. A China river cruise will take you through the impressive Three Gorges (Qutang, Wuxia, & Xiling) and view the immense dam, China's largest construction project since the Great Wall. Qutang, the shortest and most dramatic gorge, is an unimaginable place where you can nearly touch the perpendicular mountains rising from the Yangtze river banks.
