    Well ~ picture looks somehow similar to Tianmen Shan Big Gate, also called the Tianmen Winding Mountain Road. An 11k's road with 99 bends to the top of the mountain and takes visitors along all the way to Tianmen Cave via shuttle bus...

    Tianmen Mountain (Tiānmén Shān) is a mountain located within Tianmen Mountain National Park, Zhangjiajie, in northwestern Hunan Province, China.

    The road was fully integrated into a government national park a few years ago, unfortunately ~ as the whole area turned into a commercial touristy circus..... nuff said'.....
