Itinerary

ITINERARY IN DETAILS:

 

 
DAY 01: ARRIVE CHONGQING
Fly to Chongqing.
Upon arrival, met & make an excursion to the Buddhist Grotto of Dazu (about 2½ hours drive away). This is rated alongside other great Buddhist cave sculpture like the one in Dunhuang. The stone carvings there are unparalleled works of art in the world and were included by UNESCO as a World Heritage site in 1999.
Returning to Chongqing, spend some time along Ciqikou Old Street lined with old tea houses, temples, shops. Have a Chongqing Hot Pot before boarding your cruise Victoria or East King/Queen tonight.

DAY 02: YANGTZE CRUISE
Enjoy the morning cruising and after lunch, we visit Fengdu. The local residents of Fengdu believed that the town is populated by ghosts. The plethora of demon-decorated temples, buildings, and statues in this river town attest to their beliefs and has earned it the moniker "City of Devils" - the carved facades are truly fascinating.

DAY 03: YANGTZE CRUISE
Today, we cruise past 2 of the famous 3 gorges:
Qutang Xia (Qutang Gorge), is the shortest (5 miles), narrowest (500 feet), and most dramatic. The 25-mile long Wu Xia (Witches Gorge) is flanked by cliffs so sheer that the sun barely penetrates the precipices. We will also explore the "small 3 gorges" by motorized sampans. Many described the small gorges to be more spectacular the 3 main gorges. Tonight, we will sail past the western section of Xiling Gorge (the longest of the 3 gorges) and cross 3 gorges dam ship lock.
