© Chris De Bode / Panos Pictures..China, Wushan, Yangtzee, Three Gorges Dam,  01/07/2001...Because of the artificial lake "the mini three gorges"  of the Daning river will be flooded in 2003.This river is a sidebranch of the Yangtzee. Many tourists come here every year to enjoy this site. After 2003 these gorges will be changed dramatically. The water will rise at least 50 meters and flood not only the most beautiful part  but also ancient remnants of the Ba culture..Tourism in this region will lose one of its main attractions.
