Although the county is away from the Yangtze River itself, and most of its land is at high elevations, the construction of the Three Gorges Dam resulted in the flooding of the valley of the Yangtze's tributary Xiang Xi 香溪, "Fragrant Stream", where many of the county's residents lived Accordingly, some 20,000 residents had to be relocated from the flooded areas2 It is officially part of the Three Gorges Reservoir Region
The county is administratively divided into 8 county-level units: 6 towns and 2 townships
