In Order To Get To Heaven, You'll Have To Take The Stairs

Posted: Updated:

If Heaven is a place on earth, you're probably going to find it in these five places. Specifically, one of the so-called stairways to Heaven we found spread out all around the world are guiding tourists and locals to incredible views and perfect-picture opps.

From the tip-top of O'ahu to the endless expanse that is the Sahara Desert, these stairways all lead to the same place. Check out five treks below!

1. Flørli Stairs, Lysefjord, Norway

Though it's completely illegal to make this Hawaiian trek to Heaven, daredevils risk life and limb to climb the 4,000 Haiku steps and get a little closer to the sky.

3. Himmelstreppe, Morocco, Africa

This gateway to the gods is located near the town of Erfoud in the Sahara Desert, and the artist himself will book you a tour of his "Sky Stairs" art installation.
