Tribe of the Three Gorges

Tribe of the Three Gorges Scenic Spot, located in the ‘Two Dams, One Gorge’ tourist line (Three Gorges Dam, Gezhouba Dam and Xiling Gorge), is the only large scenic spot that not be influenced by the Three Gorged Dam project.

Tribe of the Three Gorges, praised as the “Protected Center of the Popular Culture and Art of the Three Gorges”, consists of three main parts, which showcase the abundant Ba Culture and Shu Culture. In these villages, you could see young women dance and sing as old sailboats moor placidly below stilt houses hidden in the bamboo grove. Maidens wash clothes by the brook side with their whirling batons; fishermen cast their nets in the misty distance… Entering the region feels like coming from afar into a dreamland garden.
