Range Rover Sport Climbs To Heaven’s Gate In China (Photos) by AutoJoshNG: 4:51pm On Feb 12, 2018
The “Heaven’s Gate”.


The sight is simply jaw dropping.


The Heaven’s Gate is one of China’s most popular tourist attractions. It is built on the Tianmen Mountain. The Tianmen Mountain is 1518.6 meter high.


The Heaven’s Gate is seated atop this Mountain.


It is built on a seventeen-century-old cave. A stairway, consisting of 999 steps of it leads to it. Note that, the St Helena’s notorious Jacob’s Ladder has 'only' 699. Much of steps rises at 45 degrees.


Due to its height, it is always covered by mist. This makes it difficult to tell where it begins and where it ends.


To get to the Heaven’s Gate, the adventure begins with a ride in the world’s longest monorail Skyram. The ride spans 7.5 kilometres from the city Centre. It is followed by a scary bus ride up the 11.3km Tianmen Mountain Road (referred to as the “Dragon Road”). It also has 99 hairpin bends.

And this is where they convinced Ho-Pin Tung - a car race driver - to drive the new Range Rover Sport PHEV to.

During the ride, the Rover made a dizzying 99 turns and 999 daunting steps.


And did he succeed to reach the peak known as the “Heaven’s Gate”?

Yes, he did.


Indeed, cars are meant to drive on roads. Some are built to drive on treacherous ones. None, however, are meant to climb, yes climb, stairs, especially deadly steep stairs.


And Range as just proved to the world with the new Range Rover Sport PHEV can do both.

But seriously so you mean to say that the gate to heaven is in China, no wonder they are so populated, all of them want to go to heaven but none of them want to die.

If that gate were to be in Nigeria Nah cow, sheep, ram, and aboki you go see on top those stairs dey constitute nuisance con mess up the whole place, the animals will devour the grasses until everywhere becomesbarren so tey dem go gas rename the place hell's gate..
