Yiling District (simplified Chinese: 夷陵区; traditional Chinese: 夷陵區; pinyin: Yílíng Qū) is a district of the prefecture-level city of Yichang, Hubei province, People's Republic of China. Created in July 2001, the district includes most of the former Yichang County, with the exception of Yichang center city (which forms Xiling District) and certain southern and western suburbs.

The land area of Yiling District is 3424 square km, population 510,000 (as of 2004).
The district is divided into 8 towns, 3 townships, and 1 "locality" (jiedao):
The district's seat of government is on the northern outskirts of Yichang urban area.
Both Gezhouba Dam and the Three Gorges Dam are located within the district.
The Xiling Bridge spans the Changjiang (Yangtze River) in the western part of Yiling District, connecting the towns of Letianxi and Sandouping on the northern and southern sides of the river. To add to the confusion, Yiling Bridge is not within Yiling District - rather, it connects the center-city Xiling District with Dianjun District south of the river.
