It rises above the ground and nears the sky with a lofty and towering posture. The shadow of it reaches the north of the vast sea, the clouds over it near the south of the handle of the Dipper. It's much like a gate towards the heaven. The wonder attracted the visits and appreciations by emperors, officials, sages, hermits, dignitaries and men of letters of different dynasties. After the accumulation over the dynasties, the unique profound Culture of Heaven is built up.  In 1999, the masters of international stunt flying piloted the planes to fly through Tianmen Cave. The activity gave rising to sensational reactions in the world. There were 800 million audiences watching the live telecast.On March 17-19, “The 2006 Russia Air Force Aerobatics Performance ” entered ceremoniously in Tianmen Mountain of Zhangjiajie , the Soviet-27 heavy battle plane and Russia air force warrior composed a world-shaking legend here once more.
