One of the most scenic and popular tourist spots in the 3 Gorges region just west of Yichang City, this canyon is filled with cliffside caves, suspended walkways, two catenary suspension bridges and paddle boats in addition to the bungee platform.

Further up the canyon is the giant Xialaoxi arch bridge on the 4-lane Three Gorges expressway that was built to assist in the building of the monstrous 3 Gorges Dam. The TGP winds along the north side of the Yangtze River for 16 miles (16 kms) between Yichang and the dam site.


1996年建成,下牢溪拱桥是TGP公路上最大的桥梁,这是一条用于建设三峡大坝的辅助性的双向四车道的专用公路。三峡工程的英文缩写TGP,这条公路在长江北岸的宜昌市与三峡大坝之间的山区中蜿蜒前行。下牢溪大桥采用的是中国人创造的转体施工方法,拱圈的两个半片都在河谷两岸的支架场地上与之,然后绕着一个巨大的球铰旋转至峡谷中央合拢。

下牢溪拱桥有四对平行的哑铃型钢管。每根钢管直径都有100cm,彼此钢管中心线间距为150cm。支撑在一个220cm的有着了一对紧密吻合的半球面的球铰之上,两个半拱圈在液压千斤顶的驱动下水平旋转,直到在拱顶位置合拢。在拱上桥面系施工的同时,钢管中浇注混凝土的工作也开始了。

下牢溪是游览整个三峡大坝下游的最美的去处之一。在岩壁上有岩洞、栈道以及两个悬链线形式的悬索跨过河流、联系着两岸。可以租上一条小船在河流上划桨休闲,探险刺激的爱好者也可以在河上60米高的蹦极平台上一跃而下。
