On our second day on the Yangtze River cruise we boarded smaller boats and navigated upstream through narrow gorges that were inaccessible from the cruise ship. The cliffs were steep and some of the views spectacular. But we were not alone – there were tour boats of several shapes and sizes to keep us company.

There were also private boats and speed boats on the narrower gorges so it is not unreasonable to think that wealthy Chinese might want to escape urban life and sail upriver to an idyllic spot like this.

There was supposed to be some sort of coffin in a cave high up one of the cliffs. I thought it was this one, but – no coffin here! If you go, listen for the legend and get the evidence!
