Qutang Gorge is a canyon and the first of the Three Gorges on Yangtze River in China. It is located immediately downstream of Baidicheng (ancient village) as the river passes between two great mountains - Chijia (on the north) and Baiyan (on the south). The other two gorges that follow are named Wu Gorge (2nd) and Xiling Gorge (3rd and largest).Qutang Gorge (China) Yangtze River Three Gorges

Kuimen Gate is the point where Yangtze passes between both mountains. This is also the entrance to Qutang Gorge - being the first (slao shortest and narrowest) of the three gorges. Qutang Gorge has length of 8 km (5 ml) 5.0 mi) and its widest point is just 150 m (500 ft).

Scenery is spectacular as the mountains on both sides soar up to 1200 m (4,000 ft). The combination of narrow canyons and high mountains creates spectacular vistas, ranking Qutang Gorge the most beautiful of China's Three Gorges.
