China has many breathtaking natural landscapes to explore but when incredible man made structures intervene with what nature has already created millions of years ago, the result is nothing short than the most amazing wonders in the country.



The Tianmen Mountain is located in the Hunan province of China. Through its peaks and valleys hides what may be considered as the most beautiful road in the world, the “Heaven-Linking Avenue”,  also known as the Big Gate Road.

Big Gate Road

This picturesque route, in addition to the natural beauty all around it, is also considered one of the most dangerous roads in China and will serpentine from 200 meters below sea level up to an altitude of 1300 meters in its 10 km in length. The Heaven-Linking Avenue gets its name for a reason, consisting of 99 curves, it is believed to symbolize heaven since the Chinese culture believes heaven has 9 places.

If you are not up for the risk, however, you can still enjoy the view by taking the cable car which is claimed to be the longest passenger cableway of high mountains in the world with a total length of 7,455 meters.
