At the end of the West Han dynasty when he declared himself emperor of Sichuan, Gongsun Shu ordered a town to be built near Qutang Gorge after he had found that it was of such strategic importance. Having seen white vapor—like a white dragon—rising one day from an ancient well in town,he named himself White Emeror,thus the name White Emeror Town being given to this town.During The Three Kindoms Period, Liu Bei, the Emeror of The State Su,before his death entrustead the state and family affaires to Zhuge Liang’care. This is how the famous legend “Tuogu (orphan entrustment) at Yong’an Palace” has evolved. Since Tang and Song dynasties, great poets like Li Bai, Du Fu,Liu Yuxi,Su Dongpo,Fan Chengda,Wang Shipeng,Lu You, Zhang Wentao, Guo Moruo,etc. spread thousands of poems on this ancient land, especially Li Bai ‘s poem of “bid Farewell to White Emeror Town” has been so popular and widespread that the White Emeror Town enjoys a reputation at home and abroad. Du Fu once lived in White Emeror Town for one year and nine month and produced 437 poems, which accounted for one third of his total productions. After 2007, with the Three Gorges Project being finished, White Emperor Town with the whole mountain has become an isolated island. It is like a pearl inlaying into the Three Gorges on the Changjiang River, also the scene of high gorge and smooth lake appears in front of it.Qutang Qorge 瞿塘峡Looking east from the White Emperor Temple,the Changjiang River go to its way between two giants towering into the clouds. That is Qutang Gorge, the first and most grand and precipitous of the Three Gorges. Qutang Gorge, with mountains on either side peaking their way up and cliffs as steep as can be imagined, is 8km in length. It is the shortest gorge of the Three Gorges.Whith the narrowest spot between the riverbanks less than 100 meters before 2003.The peak on the north bank of Qutang Gorge is named Chijia (red armor) for its reddish soil and rock looking like the back of a man. Rock and cliffs on the south bank appear w hite and clear like salt. Therefore, the peak is named Baiyan (white salt).The two opposite peaks stand 1200 meters of high,like a gateway guarding over the Changjiang is commonly known as Kuimen. Kuimen is symbolic scenery of the Three Gorges, the 10￥ note of RMB is designed by its background. Zhang Wentao, a poet of the Qing Dynasty once wrote,“Even with a smartest pen, it is still hard to paint the mountains in Qutang Qorge.”In Qutang Gorge,there are many scenic spots such as “Cliff Inscription at Qutang Qorge”, “Ancient Elephant Hall”, “the Ancient Pland Path at Qutang”, “The Ancient Fort At Qutang”, “The Iron Colummn Locked Up the River ” and etc. Minor Three Gorges at Wushan – a wonder of China 巫山 小三峡 As China’s national AAAAA scenic spot, Minor Three Gorges is located in the lower reaches of Daning River in the territory of Wushan County, including Longmen Gorge, Bawu Gorge, and Dicui Gorge. It is a scenic spot with the best ecologic environment along Yangtze River Three Gorges. Since it is characterized by particularly elegant mountains, particularly clear water, and particularly beautiful stones, it is praised as a wonder of China. Its tourist attractions include Madu River and Ancient Dachang Town. Madu River is a branch of Ninghe River in the east bank of Dicui Gorge. Its source lies in the Daba Mountain. Flowing from northeast to southwest, Madu River joins Daning River in the vicinity of Dengtian Peak. Compared with the minor three gorges along Daning River, the Minor Three Gorges at Wushan, i.e. Sancheng Gorge, Changtan Gorge, and Qinwang Gorge, gives expression to higher mountains, narrower gorges, quieter caves, and more elegant sceneries. Ancient Dachang Town is a mini-town with a history of 1700 years, characterized by the saying that “One lantern can illuminate the whole town, people at four entrances can talk to each other, and every household can hear the sound of chastising a kid.” All buildings in the town have blue bricks, black tiles, wall shelters, overhanging eaves, painted beams, and wood doors and windows. They are the most completely preserved ancient building complexes (built in late Ming Dynasty and early Qing Dynasty) in the Three Gorges reservoir. Fairy Brook 神女溪It is a small brook opposite to the famous Fairy Peak beside Yangtze River in Wushan County, Chongqing. The scenery around the brook is beautiful. The brook is 15km in length, of which 10km is covered by a virgin valley, where people seldom reach. In the valley there is a landscape named Seven-Girl Pool. In the past, only few photographers knew this mysterious place. After water was retained in the Three Gorges reservoir, Fairy Brook has become one of most charming tourist attractions at Yangtze River Three Gorges.
