Three Gorges of the Yangtze River: Chongqing to Wuhan
The famed 'long river's' gorges has held allure for travelers for centuries and any person whom now ventures to this ancient area, home to China's most revered poets and archeological treasures, will be expertly assisted by this handy guide. The 3,965 mile-long (6,380 kilometre-long) Yangtze river, which flows from the barren snowfields of Tibet to the fertile delta near Shanghai, has been a main trade artery for 2,000 years.

In addition to describing the landscape, economy and social history of the river between Chongqing and Wuhan, this richly illustrated guide also contains practical information for the traveler including informative maps, descriptions of the main sites, accommodation and tips on cruising China's legendary gorges.
