Lesser Three Gorges, China Felix Wong

We briefly hopped off of the cruise ship and jumped onto some motorized sampans in order to go through the Lesser Three Gorges. The Lesser Three Gorges are the three separate valleys of the Daning river and are comprised of the Dragon Gate Gorge, Misty Gorge and Emerald Gorge. It was very scenic and thankfully, no one got seasick on the sampans.
