Heaven’s Gate Mountain – 天門山(Mountain Tyanmen or Tianmen Mountain), has another breathe-taking scene located near Zhangjiajie.
The Cave of Heaven’s Gate
The most attractive spot is the Heaven’s Gate – 天门洞, also called Tianmen Cave, which is located at the top of the mountain. The cave lies in central is known as “Door to the Heaven”. It is the highest natural cave in China. Due to its special landscape, it was a major spot for worshiping for the ancient Chinese people. It is obvious that the Heaven’s Gate park is built solely because of the cave. While we called it a cave in English, actually it is a hole formed in between the mountain naturally. Many places in Zhangjiajie are composed of limestone deposits by nature, and this is the reason why this hole is formed in between the mountains naturally.
