The bridge named "Heaven’s Gate" is located on top of O Quy Ho pass in northern Vietnam's Sa Pa town, which is well-known for its natural beauty and indigenous highland cultures.
 
The bridge in the Hoang Lien Son mountain range is 200m long.

Visitors can walk on the 171 wooden steps to cross the bridge with protective gear, including a helmet and seatbelt attached to the cable above.

Visitors will be rewarded with stunning panoramic views of O Quy Ho pass and the Hoang Lien Son mountain range, which runs for 180 kilometres in the northwestern mountain provinces of Lao Cai, Lai Chau and Yen Bai.

A visit on the suspension bridge costs VND150,000 (US$6.5).
