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.
