At a Glance

The rivers of China, one of the most mountainous countries in the world, have connected and delineated its peoples for millennia. The Yangtze (Long River) marks the border between south and north, its dramatic gorges figuring in myth and legend. The serene waters of the Li River, flowing among mist-enshrouded green mountains, have long inspired Chinese poetry and painting. In this program, learn about China’s heritage, contemporary life, its vast and varied terrain, and sail its renowned waterways.
