Disembark this morning and take a specially-designed sightseeing boat through the recently-completed unique ship lock with a ship lift, the world’s largest. The lock will be transited in about 40 minutes to an hour. Then visit the Three Gorges Dam, which spans the Yangtze River at Sandouping; it is the world’s largest power station. Sail through Xiling Gorge, the longest (41 miles), and the deepest of the Three Gorges. Additional optional Tribe of the Three Gorges Shore Excursion on your own (river conditions permitting), offering an interesting glimpse into life in the Xiling Gorge region.
