We arrived the three gorges dam very late at night, around midnight. As it was very windy and rainy, no ship was allowed to pass through the locks. After waiting for hours, we stopped finally very close to the locks with some other ships to wait for the next morning.
In the next morning, the the rain hasn’t stopped, but the wind. But then again foggy and we had to leave the ship quarter to eight to take the bus for the dam tour.
Quite old escalators – but better a poor driving then a nice walking the stairs…
Here one of the five locks. Quite impressive…
On the hill we expected to see a bit more…
…but foggy again
I don’t mind the rain, I don’t mind the weather at all
The locks from above
When your ship is up to 30 tons, you can skip the locks, save 5 hours and take the crane
At the end, the trip to the dam was not as expected because of the fog, but as people told us over there, this is quite common for this region, there are only a few days with clear view, so please be aware of that before you decide for such a trip
