Yichang | 4 Days Three Gorges Dam Project and Tribe Tour


Video by CET Alice


"Three Gorges Dam Project" is the short term for the water control project on Yangtze River. It is located in the middle section of Xiling Gorge near Sandouping Town in Yichang City, Hubei Province. Being the world's largest hydropower project, this dam has created many "Firsts" such as the most efficient dam in flood control, the most difficult construction work and the largest migration project in the world.



The dam project is composed of the dam, the hydropower stations and the navigation facility. It measures 607 feet tall and the top is 3,319 yards wide. It has taken 17 years to finish the construction of the whole project, which started in 1992 and includes three stages.



The first stage took five years from 1992 to 1997. During this period, the cofferdam construction and the excavation of a diversion channel in the first stage were finished. Meanwhile, a temporary ship lock on the left bank of the river and some preparation work was also completed. The second stage lasted six years from 1998 to 2003, when the cofferdam construction was in its second stage and was undertaken at the same time as the construction of the permanent ship lock and the navigation buildings. The power station facilities construction and the installation of machinery on the left bank were also completed. The third stage of the project began in 2003 and has been completed in 2009. During this period, the installation of all machinery, the construction of the power station and the dam on the right bank are finished. Now, a 3,861 square miles canyon-reservoir dam is presented to the world.



The dam project was born with a huge controversy covering economic, technical, environment, migration, tourism and the protection fields. Great concerns have been paid regarding the benefits and problems that this century's big project would bring to the people and the environment. The adoption of the project construction resolution ended the heated debates among scientists.



Highlights of this Tour


In this trip, you will not only explore the world's largest hydropower project-Three Gorges Dam Project, but also visit Three Gorges Tribe, which is a good place to enjoy the wonderful natural landscapes and experience the culture and customs of the Tujia ethnic minority. 


  • Learn some history and local Yangtze culture when visit the Three Gorges Tribe;

  • Be marvel at the world-famous Three Gorges Dam Site;

  • Take in unforgettable sightseeing on your journey of discovery of Three Gorges;

  • Cruise along Yangtze River to admire the clean river and beautiful mounts.

  • Cruise cross the Gezhou Dam and get know how the Dam works to transport the big boat up and down from 40m different water levels.

  • Appreciate amazing folk shows and acrobatics in the style of the ancients and the wonderful song and dance performances by Tujia girls and boys.

  • Visit the natural scenery of  Three Gorges Tribe which is just like a painting, with the green mountains reflecting on the crystal-clear water, the quaint boats floating quietly.


The landscape along the Three Gorges is like a traditional Chinese picture, and the precious cultural relics ranging from the Paleolithic Age to the modern times add a human touch to the area. It is always a hot spot on travelers' itinerary. 


As the water rising, many scenery and historical sites were or will be flooded (by the change of the water level). The relevant cultural relic department and local government are doing their best to save these valuable cultural treasures. The protection methods such as removal and reproduction are adopted. 


Moreover, the rising water also increases the scenic area, making some impenetrable streams and scenic sights easy to reach. In a word, the dam project has ruined much natural beauty but at the same time creates new ones. So visitors should explore more, not just to feel pity of it.
