The Three Gorges
Qutang Gorge, located in Fengjie County, embodies the surging characteristics of Yangtze River. Qutang extends 8kms west from Baidi Mountain Fengjie County and east up to Daxi Town, Wushan County, and is the shortest one of the three Gorges. It has steep, sharp cliffs on both sides, with only a line of sky left visible from within it. Hence many poets have marveled at this steep and precipitous natural spectacle.
Wuxia, also known as “Great Gorge”, stretches 40kms eastward from Daning River, Wushan County, Chongqing Municipality, to Guandukou, Badong County, Hubei Province, and is famous for its gracefulness. Along the zigzagging gorge, strange-shaped mountain peaks and continuous rugged rocks form the most beautiful gallery of the Three Gorges.
The Goddess Peak, alias Wangxia Feng (Viewing-the-glow Peak) and Beauty Peak, is one of the twelve peaks, located on the northern bank, 15kms east away from Wushan County Town. A huge rock towers among the rosy clouds and takes the form of a beautiful young lady, people naming it Goddess Peak for this reason.
The Three Gorges Dam Project is the world’s largest water conservancy project. This great dam brings various benefits, including flood control, power generation, irrigation, water supply, shipping, tourism, ecological protection, and environment purification.
