Day 1: Yichang - Shennongjia
Yichang is the joint of the upper and middle reaches of the Yangtze, the longest river in Asia and the mother river of China. From Yichang, the river flows down much more gently while the mountains on the river banks become less steep. Therefore, it is usually the starting or ending point of the Yangtze River Cruise. Before or after the cruise, it is perfect having an extended tour from Yichang to unlock the mysterious Shennongjia National Nature Reserve.
On arrival in Yichang, you will be picked up from the cruise pier or railway station and transferred to Muyu town in the southern piedmont of Shennongjia. It usually needs four hours on the way.

In addition, the unique geographical environment and distinctive microclimate have also made it an ideal resort to escape the summer heat along the Yangtze River.
Today, with your guide, you will discover this area, including its summit- Shennongding, and take chances to encounter giant salamander, snub-nosed monkey, clouded leopard, and Asian black bear.
