I’m very glad to be your local guide for today’s visit.On behalf of our travel agency，we hope that all of you will feel as good as today’s sunshine and enjoy yourselves here.In the following time we will have a visit on the Three Gorges of Yangtze River-one of nature’s most fantastic sights by ship.During the tour，if you have any questions or some good ideas，please point them out，I’ll try my best to satisfy you.Wish you a wonderfuljourney！
Above all，I’d like to give you a brief introduction of the Three Gorges.The Yangtze Three Gorges is one ofthe ten most famous tour sites ofChina，proudly stands at the first place ofthe best fourteen in China’s hottest scenic spots.Extending about192 kilometers，the Three Gorges are made up ofQutang Gorge，Wu Gorge and Xiling Gorge.It starts from Baidi Town，Fengjie County in Sichuan Province to Nanjin Pass of Yichang City in Hubei province，The gorges vary from300m at their widest to less than100m at their narrowest.The three parts ofthe gorges have their own characteristics.
Now，look through the windows，please.This is the first one-Qutang Gorge which wins its fame for grand precipice.The Qutang Gorge is only 8 km.It is the smallest and shortest one in the Three Gorges，but its landscape is the most magnificent.The Yangtze River runs very fast here，and it suddenly looks like a thousand of seas poured into one cup.
As the ship goes on，we have arrived at the Wu Gorge which got the name from the Wu Mountain.The Wu Gorge extends about44 km well known for its profound beauty.Traveling in the deep seems like sailing in a nature gallery.Whenever the visitors arrived here，they were all fascinated by the famous 12 peaks of Wu Mountain.The 12 peaks stand thousands of meters high above the water.Their shapes are various and each of them has a reputation based on a beautiful legend.Goddess Peak stands out from the other peaks on the north bank.It is the most beautiful and upright one among them.
Look，over there！A huge rock towering among the rosy clouds just looks like a slim and beautiful young lady.It is the Goddess Peak.Every day theGoddess Peak is the first to great the morning sun and the last to bid it farewell.
Down from the Wu Gorge is the Xiling Gorge.The Xiling Gorge starts from Xiangxikou in the west and ends to Nanjin Pass of Yichang in the east.Its total length of 78 kilometers runs the longest in the Three Gorges.The name”Xiling”means”west mountains”in our Chinese because it located in the west of Yichang.Xiling Gorge takes on the typical scenery of the later Three Gorges，and the scene is very splendid here.
Time flies.Our visit is coming to an end and its very difficult for me to say goodbye to you.I highly appreciate your understanding and cooperation.I don’t expect that all ofyou will remember me，but I really hope that my service is ofhelp to you.Thank you very much and best wishes to you.
