Yangtze River Cruise
The Yangtze River (Changjiang), over 6,300 kilometers
long, is the largest and longest river in China, and the third-longest
in the world, next only to the Nile in northeast Africa and the
Amazon in South America. The source of the Yangtze River lies to
the west of Geladandong Mountain, the principal peak of the Tanggula
Mountain chain in the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau, southwest of China.
The river flows from west to east through provinces of Qinghai,
Tibet, Sichuan, Yunnan, Sichuan, Hubei, Hunan, Jiangxi, Anhui and
Jiangsu as well as the city of Shanghai, finally emptying into the
East China Sea. With plenty of rainfall all year round, the Yangtze
River is named the golden watercourse.
The most impressive section of the river is the
three Yangtze River gorges: Qutang Gorge, Wuxia Gorge and Xiling
Gorge, collectively known as Sanxia, or the Three Gorges.
