Wu Gorge is filled with flexuous and weird peaks, rising mists and spectacular sightseeing, known for its deep valleys and forest covered mountains.

The famous natural sceneries and attractions include: Twelve Peaks (十二峰), Goddess Peak (神女峰), Wushan Hill (巫山), Dadong (巴东), Zigui (秭归), Fragrant Stream (香溪), Daning River (大宁河), etc.

Also called Da Xia (Large Gorge), the Wu Gorge is comprised of Golden Helmet and Silver Armor Gorge (Jinkui Yinjia Xia) and Iron Coffin Gorge. As strange peaks, grotesque rocks as well as fog and clouds surround the gorge, it is usually the most notable of the three gorges. Because of the long and deep canyons in the Wu Gorge, the daily period of sunlight is short which impedes the dispersal of air borne moisture within the gorge and so creates clouds and fog in a variety of fantastic shapes. How wonderful it is!
