On the way to the Three Gorges, the boat stops at Shibaozhai in Zhongxian County, and Shibaozhai is surrounded by water. It is like a large bonsai embedded in the Yangtze River. Due to the construction of the Three Gorges, the water level of the Yangtze River has risen, so it is now protected by the bank, and the underlying building is lower than the water level of the Yangtze River. It is worth a visit.
The scenic spot of Shibaozhai is not big. The bonsai in the middle of the river is a very appropriate metaphor for Shibaozhai. During your trip there, you cannot go back to the scenic spot, you can climb the pavilion in the air. The steps are very shaking. The old man is not recommended going there as it is too risky. The surrounding environment of the Shibaizhai is fantastic, the bridge in the village is swaying and feeling that the next step is to go empty. It will take around 1 hour visiting the whole Shibaizhai. Shibaozhai is surrounded by water, and it is like a giant bonsai that is embedded in the blue waters.
Since Shibaozhai has the unparalleled wooden pagodas in the world, it is not flooded like other areas because of the construction of the Three Gorges Dam. It was surrounded and turned into a bonsai in the Yangtze River. It now needs go through a suspension bridge. The tower is all-wood structure. It was built in the Ming Dynasty. The tower is built along the mountain. The Shibaozhai has twelve floors. Now you can visit nine floors. You can climb to the top of the mountain along the wooden stairs. The wooden ladder is narrower and narrower, and each floor can see the scenery.
Shibaozhai, the Pearl of the Yangtze River, is really the most characteristic attraction along the Yangtze River. It is really impressive to build a tower on the hill. The entire tower is wooden, and it is now possible to climb from the wooden staircase. On the top of the tower you can overlook the Yangtze River. It is worth visiting!
