Heaven's Gate Mountain, Zhangjiajie City, China - Years ago, a cliff collapsed here and left a 400ft-tall hole, which many now believe to be the door to heaven. This staircase leading to the hole consists of 999 steps, the number "9" being chosen because it has the same pronunciation as the word for "eternal" in Mandarin.
