This was our second day excursion on our Yangtze River Cruise. You transfer to a smaller ship and go up the Shennong river and once it narrows you transfer to Sanpans and get rowed and pulled along. It was a very fun trip

We took a small boat from our cruise ship and were very pleased with the beauty of the surroundings on the side trip up the Shennong stream. The mountains are beautiful, the river takes on a much nice colour than there was in Chongqing, and...More
