Sichuan and Yangtze Cruises

From the slopes of sacred Mount Emei to the tranquil bamboo forests of Qingcheng Mountain, the birthplace of Taoism, Sichuan province is home to some of China’s most spectacular sights. Cruise through vast gorges on the mighty Yangtze River as it snakes across the Sichuan plains, and encounter the endearing yet critically endangered Giant Panda in the city of Chengdu.

Sichuan’s capital city of Chengdu is famed for its spicy cuisine, traditional tea houses and of course, the inimitable Giant Panda. Away from the city, amongst mist-covered mountains, you’ll discover the vast Buddha of Le Shan, carved into the cliffs and standing over 70 meters tall, a relic from the Tang Dynasty. Close to the Tibetan border you can explore the spectacular limestone valleys, azure blue lakes and folk villages of the Jiuzhaigou National Park. Cruising on the Yangtze River is an unforgettable experience, past lofty peaks and through the deep mountain gorges of the Wu mountains.
