Shennong Stream is another tributary of the Yangtze River, and its fast-flowing, crystal clear water runs southwards through deep gorges. The stream races past large and small karst caves, flocks of swallows, sheer cliffs, deep gorges, waterfalls, three-colored springs, rapids, the ancient plank path, a suspended coffin in the cliff, groups of ancient tombs and marvelous karst formations.
Can I get a mini-tour from Yichang to Shennong stream and how far is it (by bus or how would I get there?) The cruise I booked from Chongqing to Yichang does not stop at Shennong stream. Bummer! Perhaps I am just out of luck??
It will take 3 days by boat to Shennong stream. Since Shennong stream is almost the same as Lesser Three Gorges, so some of the ships go to Shennong stream, some of them go to Lesser Three Gorges, if you'll go Lesser Three Gorges, I don't recommend Shennong stream to you.
