[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This rock hole was naturally formed at the top of Mount Tianmen, which is located within Tianmen Mountain National Park, Zhangjiajie, in northwestern Hunan Province, China. To get to the top of the mountain, we first took a cablecar, and the total length of the cableway is 7,455 metres (24,459 ft) and its ascent is 1,279 metres (4,196 ft). Then we took a minibus driving on a road built on the cliff with 99 bends before reaching the top of the mountain or seeing a natural hole in the mountain of a height of 131.5 metres (431 ft).
I remember a French man flew an aircraft through this hole, creating a miracle.
