A beautiful film that takes you to all the places along the river ...

YángZǐ Jiāng (modern PinYin), also known in China as Cháng Jiāng (literally, 'Long River'), is the longest river in Asia and the third-longest in the world. It flows for 6,300 kilometers (4,000 miles) from the glaciers on the QingHai-Tibet Plateau in QingHai province eastward across southwest, central and eastern China before emptying into the East China Sea at Shanghai. The Three Gorges Dam on the river is the largest hydro-electric power station in the world.
