This was a highlight of our cruise down the Yangtse. The walls of the valley get taller and narrower as you move along. The local guide was so knowledgeable and we were entertained by them singing local folk songs.

We were lucky enough to take a sanpan trip down The Godess Stream. Truly amazing, especially seeing the remaining "Hanging Coffins", which were originally at river bed level. Most have been moved to museums, following the flooding of the area, by the construction of Three Gorges Dam, but a few can still be seen in caves near the top of the hillsides.

This short trip up a stunning river valley was well worth it. The walls of the valley get taller and narrower the further upstream you sail. Stunning.

As part of our cruise, we enjoyed this half day separate cruise up the Goddess Stream in Wushan area. We transferred into smaller, wooden boats and were taken up this very narrow tributary of the Yangtze river. The scenery was outstanding. After about a 30 minute ride, we stopped at a raft area where the local guides performed a song and dance and invited the audience to join in. A highlight was watching two little local children get on the stage and dance as well. We then returned the same way back to the cruise ship. This was a great opportunity to get even closer to the land and appreciate the magnitude of the hills/mountains in this area.

Shennv Stream has become a new highlight for passengers on a Yangtze Cruise. Also called Goddess Stream and Beauty Stream, it is in a tributary which slows into the southern side the Yangtze River.

Passengers take a wooden flat bottom boat to see the stunning scenery on both sides of the stream. Shennv Stream originates in
Wushan County and joins the Yangtze at Qingshi Town opposite Shennv
Peak (Goddess Peak).

Local villages still live high up in the mountains and travel down to work with a 2-hour hike back up to their homes. It is thought that local villages live well beyond 100 years old and the area still remains untouched by tourism.

You'll see on route hanging wooden coffins within the cave on the edge of the mountain, traditional believe that handing the coffin means you're closer to the heaven.

There's only really about 4 or 5 sunny days per month, the majority of the time expect heavy rain. Interesting 15 miles stream tour between the mountains on the Yangtze River.

We did a mini 2 hours side cruise on a stream off the Yangtze river. A stream in China is easily 15 km long and maybe 20 meters wide, or wider? In small boats. Dress warmly as it can be chilly early in the morning. And enjoy. Our guide told us lovely stories. We bought Ginseng and green tea on board. Sorry, I cannot attach photos. A pity.

This was an included excursion on our Yangtze cruise. We embarked into smaller boats, and our guide told us all sorts of information about the area and life in China today as we sailed along this lovely gorge. We saw the hanging tomb in a cave above our heads.
At the end we disembarked and admired the view, then our guides sang traditional songs to us.
A lovely trip, well worthwhile.

This was one of the included excisions on our cruise and was a great trip.

The misty scenery and the hanging coffins gave a spooky enchanted view of the rivers and gorges

This was one of my favorites things in China. The sites were stunning and the guide on our boat explained everything.
