Yangtze River Cruise & River Tours In China
Meet with the Most Beautiful Rivers
When we were discussing "China's Most Beautiful Water" we did not know to whom we should present the awards. When we see Three Gorges of Yangtze River, water towns in the east, or appreciate the West Lake, Li River, Grand Canal, many words, poems, paintings and legends spring to mind.
But when we see snow mountian lakes such as Yamdrok Lake, Namtso Lake and Qinghai Lake on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, and Gorges like Tiger Leaping Gorge, which are remote from the attentions of literati and artists of the past, we reach out in vain for the vocabulary to describe them. They were there for hundreds or thousands of years before the appearance of man, just occasionally glancing at the human world. Here is a map showing the locations of the top-raking beauty water explored by tourists.
Some Places Ships Cannot Go
All these Gorges, Lakes, Rivers are amazing, but to see some of the most interesting cities and sights, you need to explore further inland. That's why we design China river tours, a combination of an leisure cruise vacation and land tour with the most beautiful lakes and grandiose gorge that allows you to experience all that China has to offer.

Visit Heavenly Lake Nam-Tso & Holy Lake Yamdrok Tso, Tibet
Namtso, the highest salt lake in the world, at an elevation of 4,718 m. Revered by Tibetans to be sacred, the magnificence of the Numtso lake can only be appreciated by a personal visit. Here, you lose all interest in sightseeing, all you can do is relax and think deep thoughts.
Yamdrok Tso Lake, the third largest lake of Tibet and one of the most holy lakes in Tibet. The snow melted from the surrounding mountains occasionally feed the lake. Every year, large number of devotional followers in Tibet or from other places would come here for pilgrimage.
Trek Tiger Leaping Gorge (Hutiaoxia Gorge)
The Tiger Leaping Gorge trek, one of the finest treks through some of the most naturally beautiful and diverse landscapes. The trail runs high on the side of the gorge passing through quiet villages, shady forest, blustery precipice and verdant terraced farmland.
Hear the Bird Songs at Qinghai Lake
Qinghai Lake, the largest inland sea located in western China. When seen from afar, It is like a blue sapphire mounted in the vast expanse of the plateau. It is also a paradise for varieties of birds. Keep your distance, showing your respect for these real residents of the lake area.
