Gateway to Heaven
You will have to climb 999 stairs with 99 turns to reach “the Gateway to Heaven”, also known as Tianmen Cave, the highest natural arch in the world. In Chinese culture, the number nine is considered a lucky number and brings good fortune. The stairs are an important part of this spectacular landmark. The number 999 is a supreme number and believed to be a symbol of the emperor and eternity.
Tianmen Mountain has been named one of the most beautiful mountains in the world. Its breathtaking views from vertical, cliff walkways and glass skywalks make you feel like you entered a mystical portal that took you to Heaven.
