Three Gorges Dam

The scenery of the Three Gorge Dam is good, and it is free of charge now, but you need to pay the full ticket of the whole journey, and the round-trip ticket is 30 yuan. The downstream ticket for sightseeing car tour is 35 yuan, the ticket is 150 Yuan for the boat tour, but you can buy 35 Yuan tickets first, then go to the tourist attractions to add extra 30 Yuan to the staff for the boat ticket, which means that you just spend 30 yuan buying a boat trip ticket, and can also travel by car. The travel company’s toll collection fee is high, you can choose to buy tickets directly from the attraction staff, it will be much cheaper.

China’s largest hydropower station embodies the great creativity and wisdom of the Chinese people. It is also a great spectacle of human engineering construction. Green and clean energy provides a strong guarantee for the sustainable development of future generations!

There are more outdoor elevators in the Tanziling scenic spot, and the entire tourist area is free of tickets for Chinese people (as long as the 35-yuan scenic spot transportation fare). The large-scale equipment in the five-level ship lock, dam body and interception memorial park is very spectacular. This world’s first water conservancy project is still worth coming! After driving through the Three Gorges Expressway, you need to obtain a driver’s license, a driving license, and an insurance certificate to change the pass.

You can first go to the observation deck at the bottom of the dam, which is a good position for the good view of the dam. Then you can go to a position in the middle of the five-level ship lock, and look at the opening and closing water at a close distance, which is very shocking. Finally, you can go to the top of the dam. It seems that ordinary tourists can’t get in. The Yangtze River is still beautiful on the top of the dam, whether it is upstream or downstream. In general, it is still very worthwhile to go.


Shibaozhai has a total of 12 floors, and it is next to the Yangtze River. The Yuyin Mountain, which rises from the riverside, is like a goshawk that flies higher and higher, flying between the water and the sky. Do remember carefully walk into the building, the wooden floor trembled under the feet, and you will find out that each floor of the entire Zhailou is supported by several planks on the stone wall. There are no steel nails, no cement, no holes, only a tight bite. Gently stroking the miracle that is close at hand, you will feel the wisdom of the ancestors.

Shibaozhai is the first attraction in Zhongxian County. It is suitable for viewing at the distance. The old man does not recommend going there. First, they are unable to climb up Shibaizhai as it is very steep. Second, the suspension bridge is too swaying. Third, even if you climb up, when you come down, the steps are also very steep.

On the edge of the Yangtze River, it stands a hill like a bonsai. The mountain is beautiful and surrounded by green trees. A tower built on the mountain stretches into the sky, and a huge bonsai appears on the edge of the Yangtze River. It is Shibaozhai, which is an amazing attraction. It is the Pearl of the Yangtze River, and it is a natural bonsai of the river, which has been protected by the state. It can be described as a wonder, and when you view it, you will have an uncontrollable mood, then just take photos of Shibaozhai to balance it!

Shibaozhai really deserves the magical work of nature. Although it has been flooded and turned into a bonsai because of the Three Gorges Project, the miracles created by the karst landscape are still intact. The carvings of Shibaozhai are small and exquisite and unique.
