The Three-Gorges Tribe is located on Xiling Gorge in the city of Yichang, between the Three-Gorges Dam and the Gezhouba Dam, in a region of mountains and streams where the scenery has the beauty of landscape paintings. Young women dance and sing as old sailboats moor placidly below stilt houses hidden in the bamboo grove. Maidens wash clothes by the brook side with their whirling batons, fishermen cast their nets in the misty distance… Entering the region feels like coming from afar into a dreamland garden.

3. The Mountain-Top Village

The suspension building on the top of the mountain is called by the modern architect as "building with railing style”. Due to the steep terrene along the three gorges area, buildings here, with Banana trees planted around, are mostly built by the mountains with wood materials. Its name come after the fact that pillar and wall needs to be established when facing the almost vertical ridges, and its unique lies in its low front and high behind, passage on the side and the balcony in the behind.

It reflects the spirit of optimistic, fun and love of life of the people living in the gorges area. On the suspension building with windy passage and looking around, picturesque scenery will bring you with great pleasant feelings.
