Yangtze River Facts

The Yangtze River is the longest river in China and the third longest in the world, next to the Nile in Africa and the Amazon in South America. Generally, the Yangtze River is divided into three sections: the upstream (the section from Yibin to Yichang), middle part (the section from Yichang to Hukou), and downstream (the section from Hukou to Shanghai). Between Chongqing and Yichang, it is at an altitude of 40 meters and a distance of about 320 kilometers, is the section where the most classical shipping areas for cruise and the spectacular Yangtze Gorges are located.

The Yangtze River is important to the cultural and historical origins of southern China, and the human activities were found in the Three Gorges areas as far back at 27 thousand years ago. The Ba and Chu cultures are originated from here.
