We ended our cruise in the pleasant city of Yichang. From there, we did a trip to nearby Sanyoudong; which had trails going up a peak and the views of the yangtze from the top is beautiful.
This is a view the top of the temple looking behind. It looks like all these terraces and flats will be submerged too!
The entry to the temple. The banner on the entry means up to the clouds we climb. (approximate translation) with my average mandarin.
Again, you see the same layering, or should i say "the move up"...The river itself is very polluted however, you see floating rubbish all over. WE joked that this is one huge sewer system!
Look at that small ship and compare it to the size of the surrounding cliffs! The entry to the second gorge.
This lovely park is located on top of one of the highest hills in Chongqing. Thus, you get a unique view of the river/dam and the sourounding areas.
See the villages, new and old, along the riverbank, unfortunately from your boat. Experience how peoples' life, and history changes as the river flows.
The city zoo is also good.You can see pandas there.
And Chongqing football team is also among the best in China's Football league.
