China’s Tianmen Shan or the Heaven's Gate Mountain in Hunan province is named after an incredible cave natural arch eroded through the karst syncline. The Heaven’s Gate, as the arch is called, is located about 8 km south of the city of Zhangjiajie. It is accessed from Zhangjiajie by what may be the world's longest passenger cableway at a length of 7.5 km, followed by a bus ride along an 11-km long winding road with 99 bends called the “Heaven Linking Avenue”, that reaches the top of the mountain. From there a set of stairs with exactly 999 steps take visitors right underneath the 130-meters tall and 57-meters wide arch.
