Yangtze Gorges Scenic Spot - CHINA - UNESCO TENTATIVE

Three Gorges of the Yangtze River is located in Sichuan Province and home of the largest hydroelectric dam in the world (a amazing engineering work that took almost 15 years constructing). Beyond the dam, that legendary river (the longest in Asia) hides some of the most beautiful scenic spots in China, a site that UNESCO is considering to be a World Heritage Site. Thank you very much Heng. This postcard took 17 days to arrive!
