The Three Gorges Dam cost $37 billion to build but it should only take 10 years of operation to cover that cost.
1.3 million people had to be relocated due to the dam’s huge reservoir.
The dam was conceived of decades ago – Mao Zedong was so pro the idea he wrote a poem about it called ‘Swimming’!
There is 510,000 tons of steel in the Three Gorges Dam, enough to build the Eiffel Tower sixty times over.
The dam has allowed ocean going freight ships to sail up the Yangtze to the heart of China.
