Qutang Gorges is considered as the most dramatic and gorgeous one by many tourists, with the width of the river here reduced to 100-200 meters and the narrowest places no more than a few dozen meters.

A continuous line of peaks along the deep Qutang Gorges reaches as high as 1,000-1,500 meters, which makes a most magnificent picture. Much more picturesque, the turbulent waters of the rolling and roaring river flow through the rock gate that towers over the water.
