“Absolutely beautiful site”

Small Three Gorges in Chongqing
Attraction details
Reviewed 16 August 2014

You get to take a small boat to see some incredibly beautiful scenery. People will point out different things along the walls of the gorge such as hanging coffins, and you'll even see people living along the gorge. Very neat.

If you take the Yangtze River cruise, make sure you take this excursion - you will be amazed at the towering sides of the gorge as you proceed upstream in a small boats. Pictures do not do justice to what the eye sees.

Also known as the Lesser Three Gorges. Took an half-day excursion from our cruise ship on the Yangtze River. While the mountains were green and lush, the boat ride was much too long in the searing sun and humidity (late August). Our tour group was "assigned" the top deck where the AC was practically nonexistent; better to stay on the deck and find some shade and the breeze.

Very disappointing end destination to take a short ride on a fake Sanpan boat to try to catch a glimpse of the "hanging" coffins. Felt like I was at Disneyland taking the Jungle Cruise.

Only redeeming factor was our guide, Jenny

Breathtaking as the views are so green. Intriguing hanging coffins on the hill, just wonder how they can placed it there. Great history and how the minorities tribe stay alive out of nowhere but with plenty lush greeneries.

The three lesser gorges was one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen in my life! It was fantastic. A must see!! Try to rent a private boat if you can. They are also much, much better than the three large gorges.
