Shipton’s Arch, Tianmen in Chinese, meaning "Heavenly Gate", is a conglomerate natural arch, west-northwest of Kashgar, near the village of Artush in Xinjiang, China. The arch was discovered by English mountaineer Eric Shipton in 1947 while he was traveling between Tashkent and Kashgar, though it was known by locals. However, it could not be verified of its location after his discovery.
It was only as recently as May of the year 2000 that an expedition sponsored by National Geographic Magazine rediscovered the arch for foreigners thus it became well-known. Shipton's Arch is probably the world's tallest natural arch.The height of the arch is estimated to be 1,200 feet (370 meters).
