Visiting Three Gorges Dam
the essence route of visiting is: the dam site, a garden like place now where you might have a close look to the dam itself and enjoy moisture and beautiful scenery, sometimes if encountering water discharging, a magnificent view with large amount of discharged water out of the dam spill gates; the dam museum, where you might be provided with more detailed and background information about the dam; Jar-hill, the highest point of the whole dam area, by standing on top you might have a bird’s eye view of the project.
Books of the project are very informative thus highly recommended. They’re in fixed prices and issued by the dam organization, so quality guaranteed.
The Dam site and the jar-hill are usually very hot, though moisture helps to cool down a little. Wearing hat and anti-sun lotion are suggested when visiting the site and hill in summer;
AS the biggest and most important national project in China, it owns key significance both in military and politics. So the buses should go through strict checking points when visiting the Three Gorge Dam area, and get specially issued permission paper before visiting.
Wheelchairs are accessible in the whole area. Restroom facilities are available at every site.
