Three Gorges Dam

The Three Gorges Dam is located in Yichang City, Hubei Province. It is 38 kilometers away from the Gezhouba Water Conservancy Project in the lower reaches of the Yangtze River. It sits at the east tip of the main project of the Three Gorges Hydropower Station (the world’s largest water conservancy project), the core landscape of the Three Gorges Dam tourist area, and the Three Gorges Reservoir.

The Three Gorges Dam scenic area includes the Three Gorges Exhibition Hall, Tanziling Park, 185 Park, Dam-side Park, and River Closure Memorial Park. Among them, Tanziling Park, 185 Park, and River Closure Memorial Park are open to tourists throughout the year. At the top of Tanziling, the dam and the Yangtze River can be seen in the distance. The flood discharge viewing area and the 185-meter water line viewing area always surge with powerful waves. The River Closure Memorial Park not only offers wonderful songs, dances, and other performances, but also acts as the internal transportation center of the scenic area.
