... for the reservoir. The dam includes a hydro electric plant that generates electricity for the power hungry population. The dam also controls the fierce rapids and dangerous flooding of the river and ensures year round navigation of the 6 380 "Long River" through an impressively simple five stage lock. (It takes approximately three and a half hours for each vessel to pass through the lock system....in our pass, there was the cruise ship and two barges.)

A visit to the Dam area, which has been painstakingly adapted so that tourists can get a terrific insight into the immenseness of the whole project. On arrival, vessels are being navigated into the lowest of the five step locks. We were adopted by Wendy, a guide employed by the management of the dam, ...

To make the 1000 kilometer trek takes 15 hours in an overnight sleeper train. I knew that the “deluxe soft sleeper” option wasn’t available, but I had reserved a “soft sleeper” which is a private room with 4 bunks. Even though children aren’t required to have tickets, I ...
