We were travelling on the Sanctuary Yangzi Explorer and took a trip on the Shennong Stream. This was a humbling morning aboard a small boat with the trekkers. The sheer physicality of their rowing is breath-taking. As you would imagine they have weather beaten faces...More

We went here as part of our Yangtze river cruise. We transferred to a smaller boat and went down the stream and back. The scenery was beautiful and we saw the hanging coffins.

This ‘stream’ is an offshoot of the Yangtze that takes you through a narrow gorge for around 10 miles. There's some interesting things to see on route- caves (one of which is very large), small villages, spectacular bridges and, strangely, small dried up coffins planted...More
