Qutang Gorge (Qūtáng Xiá)

Qutang Gorge (Qūtáng Xiá) Review

The westernmost gorge, Qutang Gorge is also the shortest. The currents here are quite strong due to the natural gate formed by the two mountains, Chijia and Baiyan. There are cliff inscriptions along the way, so be sure to have your guide point them out and explain their significance. Several are from the Warring States period more than 1,000 years ago. Warriors' coffins from that period were discovered in the caves on these mountains, and some still remain.
