Wu Gorge is the most coherent and neat gorge in the Three Gorges. It is divided into east and west sections. The western section is composed of Jinkui Yinjia Gorge and Jianchuan Gorge. The eastern section is composed of Tie Guan Gorge and Menshan Gorge. The famous 12 peaks of Wushan are located on both banks, with each six peaks in the north and south. The twelve peaks are picturesque and full of gestures, which is the essence of the Wu Gorge. Among the twelve peaks, the goddess peak is the most famous. However, if you visit the Wu Gorge by boat, you can only see nine peaks. And you must disembark if you want to see the Shangsheng peak, Qiyun Peak, and Jingtan Peak, and they can be seen only near the Qingshi Town.
The Wu Gorge is deep and narrow, the sunshine time is short, and the steam in the canyon is not transpiration, which is easy to form a cloud. The clouds and mists have various forms, and they are like a dragon, a jade belt, a waterfall, and a gauze. Under the sunshine, it is very beautiful, forming the famous Wu Gorge flammule.
There are many scenic spots and historical sites in Wu Gorge. In addition to the famous Wushan Twelve Peaks, there are also Luyou Ancient Caves, Dayu Book Terraces, Shennv Temple Sites, and Kong Ming Stone Monuments, all of which attract visitors from all over the world.
The most suitable way to play Wuxia is to take a boat down the Yangtze River Ferry Terminal in Wushan County and watch the magnificent Wushan Twelve Peaks and the misty Wushan Clouds.
When the boat passes through the Wu Gorge, the clouds are haunting. Although the scenery is not very real, it is very beautiful, with a kind of beauty, which is a bit like the Lijiang River in the mist, but it is more atmospheric than the Lijiang River.
