Sail The Three Gorges.
The Three Gorges are simply stunning.
The huge peaks of this spectacular gorge and river system, that dwarf the large ships as they quietly go about their daily trade, are spectacular and the sheer cliff walls are something to behold.
Each of the three gorges take between 3 and 5 hours to navigate and the sense of Mother Nature intimidating us mere mortals was something special. As we sailed slowly down the mighty Yangtze River I could not help but wonder about the sheer magnitude of water that was being held away from its ultimate goal of reaching the ocean. I also attempted to picture what it would be like to sail these same waters when Mother Nature unleashed her fury in all her glory and the calm Yangtze became an angry bubbling soil stained torrent.
