As an extra trip on our Yangtze cruise, took a side trip up the Goddess Stream gorge. We transferred to a smaller boat, and went several kilometers up the steep gorge. At the final spot, the gorge was less than 30 meters wide. With incredible...More

The scenic spot contains all natural landscape elements and traditional culture reprensentation. Multiple landscape elements are harmoniously combined, which include rocks, waterfalls, caves and springs. We even got to see a few monkeys and a wedding.

This was an optional tour on the cruise we were on, and we can't say the value was there for the price we paid. However, it was a lovely place to wander along and enjoy the setting and the "crying wedding show" (which was super...More

If you are interested in just the scenic views, it is a good place. However, the buildings and courtyards are built for the purpose of making this place a tourist attraction. They aren't authentic or historical at all. We took the cruise tour specially arranged...More

This was an optional tour that we took while cruising an the Yangtze River. This was amazing! The water was so tranquil and peaceful. The crying wedding was a neat representation of the old days. I would definitely go back!

This stop is part of the river cruises and is worth the time taken. It's like a forest in the middle of more peaceful times. Monkeys come down to you from the mountains to be fed (they know the tricks), wedding ceremonies are performed and...More

Hello! If I remember correctly the Sanxia Family Scenic Resort is the same as the tribe of the three gorges river. The walk isn't very arduous at all. I would say it's quite easy to mild walk. I think the river cruise... More
