Precious Stone Fortress

On a peaceful late afternoon from the river cruise boat.
Looking up as we were about to enter it.
A different angle from the river (on a different trip, we drifted by on a misty morning). This gives you a better idea of how steep the angle is.

Different views of Shibaozhai. A very impressive sight whichever way you look at it. The entrance to it would have been underwater once they filled the reservoir for the three gorges dam, but they built a coffer dam to protect it.
