Tianmen Mountain, China

Tianmen Mountain is a mountain located in northwestern Hunan Province, China.
It is also known as Heaven Gate Mountain due to a large natural ark, many Chinese people believe that the Tianmen Mountain is the “Closest Earth Landmark to God”. There are cable cars which offer a dramatic views, there is also the glass balcony, both are not a good choice if you are afraid of heights…

Note that from November till the end of January it tends to get real foggy around there so make sure you don’t climb up those 999 steps up to the Heaven Gate and miss out the view.
