A cruise from Yichang to Chongqing (upstream)
takes four nights and five days. Read the differences between upstream and downstream cruises.
Most cruises run between Chongqing and Yichang. Popular cruise companies are Victoria Fleet Cruises, President Fleet Cruises and China Dragon Fleet Cruises. Shore excursions vary according to ship and schedule, mainly including the Three Gorges Dam, Daning River Lesser Three Gorges, Shennong Stream, Fengdu Ghost City, Shibao Village and Fengjie (White Emperor City).
Although Yichang is often overlooked by travelers, who travel straight through to board a Yangtze cruise ship, Yichang has a freshness and tidiness, and has some picturesque natural sights in the vicinity. China’s largest municipality, Chongqing, has a number of tourist attractions. If you are interested and your itinerary permits, China Travel Compass can tailor-make your own Yichang half-day (or one-day) trip and Chongqing one-day trip
