Five of China's largest cities (Shanghai, Wuhan, Chongqing, Chengdu, and Nanjing) are located in the reaches of the river and the 1.8 million square km Yangtze River basin is home to 1/3 of Chinas population (400 million).
The Yangtze River is rich in history and culture. The stories of the Three Kingdoms Period and Bashu Culture and Jingchu Culture is interestiing and mysterious.
The Yangtze’s gorges are highlights on the river’s course. Tiger Leaping Gorge, on the Upper Yangtze, is the deepest gorge in the world, with mountains towering 4,000 m (13,000 ft) above it and steep 2,000 m (6,600 ft) cliffs at its sides. The Three Gorges (Qutang Gorge, Wu Gorge and Xiling Gorge) and the Lesser Three Gorges on the Yangtze’s middle reaches are awesomely beautiful, with relaxing cruises and pretty side gorges to be explored.
