Pingxi Dam, 24 kilometers away from Fuling city, Chongqing, covers an area of about 350 mu.Surrounded by water, it’s an isolated island in the river center of the Three Gorges Reservoir. In sunny days, the water is blue and bright, and Pingxiba Island just looks like an emerald set on a blue silk ribbon under the camera of an unmanned aerial vehicle.
