New Scenes of the Yangtze Three Gorges




Now, the "wolf" finally comes. Yangtze Three Gorges Project (TGP) finished storing water on June 15, 2003, and the water level reached targeted 135 meters above sea. Electricity it generated is being transmitted to Shanghai. China's big dam is eventually put into operation. Are the Three Gorges disappeared? Can we still go to the Yangtze river and cruise the gorges?

Check for yourself!

Here are some pictures taken right after the water-storing process completed. Click the small pictures to get larger images.
