The construction of the world’s largest hydroelectric power plant in the vicinity of China’s Three Gorges was accompanied by some heated discussions concerning energy production as well as the protection of the region’s population, environment and cultural heritage.

Now, you can pay a visit to the idyllic Three Gorges region via the Internet portal “Second Life” and experience a journey through history. Immerse yourself in the past, hike through the landscape as it exists in the present, or soar high above it into the future.

A video documentary complements the presentation and reflects life in and around the villages of the Three Gorges region.
