🇨🇳 “There is a good reason to call China "Celestial Empire" - the Heaven's Getaway leads from here. In the National Park of Tianmen Mountain, you can see the Heaven's Gate. Its geographical name is Tianmen Cave, but Chinese call it "The Magic Cave of Western Hunan".❤️” __________________________________ 📸 @guiamundoafora __________________________________ . .. . .. . #china🇨🇳 #celestial #heavensgataway #gatetoheaven #tianmencave #visitchina #nationalparks #zhangjiajie

This natural ancient destination is called "Gateway to Heaven". It is about 5,000 feet above sea level and is located on the top of Tianmen Mountain. . A stairway of 999 steps leads to the foot of a cave from the top of Tianmen. Due to the Taoist philosophy, these mystical 999 steps are the supreme number and the symbol of the emperor. There is a belief among the locals that the mountain itself and its gates of heaven have a mystical force. . In addition, there are various legends about the countless treasures of the Ming Dynasty hidden in the mountains of Tianmen (allegedly, one of the leaders of the peasant uprising hid great treasures in the cave). For centuries the treasure hunters are trying hard to find them, but unsuccessfully. #ancientdestinations . Follow: @ancientdestinations

The peaks of the Tianmen Mountains were engulfed with fog the day we visited, but that just added to the beauty of this mystic place. After a 30 minute steep cable car ride up to the top, we were able to hike around and enjoy the views, walk on a 4700 foot high glass skywalk, and walk the 999 steps to Heaven’s Gate. Instead of taking the cable car to the bottom, we rode down the twisting mountain road, complete with 99 turns. #tianmenmountain #tianmenmountains #heavengatemountain #tianmencave #zhangjiajie #china #travelphotography #explorechina #travelchina #traveltheworld #exploremore

Для тех, кто вчера пропустил эту красоту, напоминаю, начало событий на @panorama_amsterdama, а продолжение прямо сейчас... _ Эта природная арка названа Небесными воротами или Воротами в небеса (хотя некоторые китайцы не очень любят это название и называют её «волшебная пещера Западной Хунани») не просто так, она расположена довольно высоко и часть арки и горы Тяньмэнь зачастую окутаны облаками. По причине высоченного расположения арки «Небесные ворота»  добраться сюда не так легко, для этого нужно быть психически и морально устойчивым😉😂, а также терпеливым. На вершину горы Тяньмэнь можно взобраться несколькими способами, первый самый простой и быстрый из всех, но для этого придётся поднятья и прокатиться по самой длинной в мире канатной дороге, длина которой - 7455 м, она даже попала в Книгу рекордов Гиннеса за счёт своей длины. А проектировали и возводили её отнюдь не китайцы, а французские инженеры, так что за качество этой дороги можно не беспокоиться. При подъеме по этой канатной дороге открываются просто захватывающие панорамы окрестных гор и лесов, под Вами при этом огромное расстояние до поверхности земли, которое при приближении к горе становится всё большим, дорога иногда даже врезается прямо в облака. Вот поэтому особо впечатлительным и слабонервным лучше не пользоваться этим способом передвижения на вершину горы и к «Небесным вратам». . Второй способ - это проехаться по автомобильной трассе носящей название «дорога 99 поворотов» (❗обязательно листайте фото❗), и это неспроста, она очень извилиста и действительно имеет 99 поворотов. Во время поездки к вершине ощущаешь на себе каждый крутой поворот этой дороги, а между некоторыми поворотами расстояние не превышает 200-ти метров, что довольно сильно изнуряет. А для особо выносливых людей предлагается пройти весь этот путь пешком! А это ни много ни мало - 11 километров, причём это путь, который ведёт постоянно вверх. Интересно, что эту сложную и длинную дорогу под названием «дорога 99 поворотов» китайцы построили всего за 8 лет. Продолжение не за горами... 😄 _ Наташа Битепаж - ваш гид в Голландии @panorama_amsterdama WhatsApp +31 (616) 092-940 Ин-Фо-То: mirkrasiv.ru

cgtn. A stunning fog view passed through the Tianmen Cave in the Tianmen Mou

A stunning fog view passed through the Tianmen Cave in the Tianmen Mountain National Forest Park in central China's Hunan Province on Saturday. The lingering fog looked like a white dragon spewing smoke in the cave. #zhangjiajie #tianmenmountain #tianmencave #tianmenshan #fog #mountian #nature #hunanprovince #beautifulview #avatar

There are 99 sharp curves on the road up to Tianmen Cave. The road is built for tourist use, taking tourists from the mountain foot to the top of the mountain and Tianmen Cave. Tourist buses take travelers from the midway cable car station along some of these 99 bends to Tianmen Cave. 🎥 credits: @ellsofar

999 steps of Heaven From the center of Zhangjiajie in China’s Hunan province, visitors load onto the Tianmen Mountain Cableway. Over the next half-hour, the cable car will climb almost 24,500 feet to the top of Tianmen Mountain. At the end, the riders step out onto the #GatewaytoHeaven At about 5,000 feet above sea level, #TianmenCave is the highest naturally formed arch in the world — which has given the landmark its famous moniker. The impressive views and unique formation are the reason most people trek up the mountain. The cave itself is about 430 feet tall and 190 feet wide. It used to be a fairly ordinary cave until the year 263 A.D., when one side of the mountain’s cliff collapses and created the portal to heaven. Although be careful to whom you tell this origin story. Some believe that the cave’s creation is a mystery, which only strengthens its Tianmen’s reputation as a holy mountain.

The elevation of Tianmen Mountains is 1518.6 meters (the highest one in Zhangjiajie); people may feel amazing that about 40 peaks inside the mountain area are over 1000 meters. The mountain is famous for its unique natural miracle - the Tianmen Cave; it was authorized as a national forest park in July, 1992. The door-alike cave was created after the cliff collapsing in ancient time. Tianmen Mountains is rich in Chinese culture; it is regarded as the Top 1 Heaven Mountain in the west part of Hunan province and the sprit of Wuling (an old name of the county here). This place has absorbed the essence from the nature for thousands years, therefore visiting the holy temple on the mountain – Tianmenshan Temple has become a popular way to pray for a safe and healthy life. #china #zhangjiajie #tianmen #tianmenmountain #mountain #tianmencave #nature #beautiful #amazing

Tianmen ('Heaven's Door' 天门 Tiānmén /tyen-mnn/) Cave is a large (30 meters or 100 feet wide) water-eroded hole between two peaks, like a huge doorway in the cliff face. It's the highest hole of its sort in the world. Then there are 999 steep and narrow steps up to the cave — "the Stairway to Heaven". It is a hard and tiresome climb (about 30 minutes), but the impressive views and unique formation are the reason most people trek up the mountain.

I’ve wanted to go to this place forever. When I actually got here, the fog was so bad you could barely see in front of you. I waited over an hour- and it last only a few minutes- but the cave finally revealed itself. #天门山 (Tianmenshan, Zhangjiajie, Hunan, China) #china

🇺🇸 Throwback to 2016: two years ago today we were climbing the 999 steps (9 is the lucky number in China) that would take us to Tianmen Cave, aka Heaven’s Gate. Although the view wasn’t great due to the dense fog, the mountain was still fascinating and mysterious. 🇨🇳 🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳 🇧🇷 Hoje faz dois anos que estávamos subindo os 999 degraus (9 é o número de sorte na China) que nos levaria à Tianmen Cave, também conhecida como Portão do Céu.

To fully enjoy the #tianmenmountain experience, I recommend our itinerary. Take the #cablecar ride to the top, explore the #mountain ‘s scenic routes to the #glasswalk , take the escalator ride to the mouth of #tianmencave , and take the 999 steps down to the base. #zacdayoutcn #travel #travelphotography #travelwithkids #wanderlust #nature #instatravel #china #zhangjiajie

#tianmenmountain has scenic routes that help ease all that walking and hiking. Before we knew it, we were on the longest escalator I have ever been on towards #tianmencave . From the cave, we took 999 steps towards the mountain’s base. You can skip the Stairway to Heaven by taking the escalator all the way down to the base but you’re going to miss A LOT. #zacdayoutcn #travel #travelwithkids #wanderlust #instatravel #zhangjiajie #china

#tianmenmountain has lots of sections that I believe could be explored in a day. We only had the whole afternoon to explore it because the whole morning was spent on compulsory shopping stops (y’know, travel agencies 😊). Anyway, we were on our way to the #tianmencave or ‘Stairway to Heaven’. #zacdayoutcn #travel #travelwithkids #travelphotography #wanderlust #instatravel #zhangjiajie #china

Tianmen Cave ('Heaven's Door' 天门 Tiānmén /tyen-mnn/) Cave is a large (30 meters or 100 feet wide) water-eroded hole between two peaks, like a huge doorway in the cliff face. It's the highest hole of its sort in the world. To reach the cave, take a tourist bus (usually a mini-bus) on the 99 Bends (see above). Then there are 999 steep and narrow steps up to the cave — "the Stairway to Heaven". It is a hard and tiresome climb (about 30 minutes). The views from the cave are quite plain, and it is always crowded, and hard to find a good place for photos. So it's only really worth doing to say you've "climbed the stairway to heaven" and "knocked on Heaven's Door".
