Honestly, you probably won’t find true heaven in this place and there are probably other ways to make sure you make it to the real heaven, but while on earth, it is one of those places that could be described as a natural heaven. But enough with these words of wisdom and let’s get back to the point. This enormous natural arch is located in the northern Hunan province of China, just 8 km south of the city of Zhangjiajie (formerly known as Dayong, if it helps you). This place might be known as the Heaven’s Gate, but the road leading to this exceptional natural site could as well be named the Highway to Hell.
To reach the summit where this arch is located, you first have to take the skytram, which, by the way, may be the longest in the world at over 7 km. Then you take a bus on a very winding road, taking you closer to the peak. As if this was not enough, you will also have to climb some stairs. Don’t worry though, it’s not like there are thousands of stairs to climb…there are just 999. But the view and sight of the Heaven’s Gate will be worth any sacrifice and effort. The panorama you have from the top is truly inspiring and fascinating; with the light passing through the arch and lighting the distant mountain peaks.
