I had a GORGEOUS trip cruising through the Three Gorges in Autumn! The leaves are red, set against the green mountains and cliffs and the blue, sunny sky.

How did the Chinese manage to inscribe the five huge characters on the cliffs of Qutangxia Gorge?

The Han Yangling Mausoleum Museum is most impressive. Modern, state-of-the-art facilities and exhibition halls. The guide says, with prior booking and a fee, we can experience a simulated excavation in person.
