Shibaozhai Temple

Visit the Shibaozhai Temple on a Yangtze River Cruise

Shibaozhai Temple perches precariously on a rocky island in the midst of the Yangtze’s flow, the bright red façade of its pagoda immediately spottable as you cruise along.  The pagoda climbs twelve storeys up a cliff face, the pavilion that houses the first nine stories leans against a sheer stone bluff, providing access to a second three storey pavilion that sits on top of the bluff. Originally set high above the Yangtze, the effects of the Three Gorges Dam on the water levels means that Shibaozhai today is now close to the river’s edge. Climbing through the storeys, each of which is decorated with inscriptions of past dynasties, to the top will give you excellent views down over the river and beyond.
