The longest river in Asia and the third longest in the world, the Yangtze River stretches through China’s most enchanting historic, cultural, and culinary treasures. Sail through the impressive Three Gorges with its dreamlike vertical cliffs and view the immense dam, China’s largest construction project since the Great Wall. A journey down the Yangtze River—a lifeline in ancient and modern times—is full of intrigue, mystery, and astonishing beauty.
If you choose a trip that includes Tibet, you will be visiting the holy city of Lhasa which is at a 14,000-foot altitude. The visit is for 3 nights; you will have some time to adjust to the thin air.
