Your character's resurrection. The elders give you the longest scarf possible, and bathe you in golden energy. Your characters then blasts off into the sky like a rocket, flying through the clouds. The war machines fly by, and it almost sounds like they're roaring "NO!" Then you emerge into this paradise of sunlight, snow and waterfalls filled with cloth creatures, while soaring music leads you to your goal. After all that your character went through in the previous level, the awesomeness of this one really makes up for it.
"The Road of Trials" is a level full of awesome. You spend most of it surfing through sand like it's water, through arches, over ridges and down steep rollercoaster-esque drops, with carpet creatures dancing and flying around you. Then, right before the end, the game gives you an absolutely stunning view of a ruined city lit up by a sunset that seems to set the very sand aflame. So beautiful it brings tears to your eyes.
There's no real reason to dart under archways or ramp off of ridges... but you'll be hard-pressed to find a player who just goes the path of least resistance.
