It is secluded to the national parks with 114 lakes and many waterfalls. We love the fresh air and scenic view it has to offer. Our trip continued to Chongqing where we started our 4 days cruise along the Yang Tze River. It was magnificance seeing the scenic view of the Gorges and admiring wonders of the great dam China built. We flew from YiChang to Beijing and spent 5 days there.
