Pidan mount (Livadiyskaya)
- Duration: 1 day
Mount Livadiyskaya (height 1332.6 meters), located in the southern Sikhote-Alin, is the dominant peak of the Livadiyskiy ridge, from which in clear weather overlooks the entire coast of Primorye from Nakhodka to Slavyanka. Unofficial, but the most common name for the mountain is the old name - Pidan, supposedly of Chinese origin, formed by the components: pi - great, large; Dan - rocks, that is, "Big Rocks." There is a myth that, in the Jurchen language, the name means “Stones strewn by God,” the name was given to the mountain due to kurums (stone screes), covering a significant area of the slopes, as well as the peaks themselves.
People say that during the period of the Bohai empire, stone Maori guards were installed here and the famous wall of Pidan was built. The unceasing interest in the mountain is also fueled by the legends of the “White Woman” and “Flying Man”, incredible eyewitness accounts of mysterious phenomena associated with the mountain. Occultists, magicians, and psychics consider Pidan one of the magic centers of the Earth ...
