Three Gorges 2007 -China

The Yangtze Three Gorges, the most splendid and beautiful section of the Yangtze River, is one of the 10 top sceneries in China. Beginning in Baidi Town in Fengjie with Chongqing in the west and ending in Nanjin Pass in Yichang, Hubei Province in the east, its total length is nearly 200 kilometres. The Three Gorges consist of three sections - the Qutang Gorge, the Wu Gorge and the Xiling.

On 01/06/2003, the world famous Yangtze Three Gorges Dam Project started to store water. In 10 days, the water level of the reservoir area reached 135 metres. Four months later, the water level rose to 139 metres. The Three Gorges is now a man-made lake and lost its original look. The Yangtze River, which runs forward with great strength and vigour for million of years, now greatly slows its paces. The yellow river became green and smooth. The shadows of the mountains can be clearly reflected on the water.
