Assunto:  Inversion after negative and limiting adverbials
 
Mensagem:  Hello, everyone!

Could you help me, please?

 "Not until you climb to the top can you really understand exactly how beautiful the view is." (extracted from a Macmillan grammar book)

The question: I don't understand why the inversion happened in the second part of the sentence (can you) instead of the beginning (you climb). For example:

Not until do you climb to the top you can really understand exactly how beautiful the view is.

Thanks in advance.

Andrea.
