Pidan is a magic mountain in the old scriptures. According to legends, the cult quartz crystal(enormous size) was established on this mountain. Legend says that during Bohai only priests could climb to the top of Pidan. The mountain got its name by living there dzhurdzhen tribes and the name means “stones rolled by God.” However, mountain is remarkable not only of scattered huge blocks of stones. There are also dolmens and impressive wall of cyclopean blocks of 400-500 meters in length on its top. We can say that this is another great Amur wall, similar to that one was found on the mountain Shaman in village Nizhnetambovskoe. And the stones used for masonry walls, were mined here.
It isn’t known what kind of unusual patterns scattered on the trail leading to the top of the mountain on some rocks, as well as why and how incisions and cuts on the other stones were made.
Mountain that is 1332 meters high is one of the ten highest mountains in Primorye and it is in the middle of the Livadia ridge local. If the weather is clear a beautiful panoramic view “opens” from the top – you can see the other peaks of mountains, islands, sea, villages. “Ocean” of taiga with “waves” of ridges and spurs taking a different position of the sun at different shades inspires. During the clouds even more impressive view opens – mountains rise above the white clouds field. Take a climb to the famous mountain. Meet with bizarre stone compositions on the top of Pidan – “Pyramid”, “walls”, “altars”, “dolmens”, “entrance to the cave” – that gave rise to many legends. See and touch the Ussuri taiga “inside” and from the bird’s-eye view.
Along with the range of feelings that the majesty of nature causes, there is a whole layer of emotions caused by overcoming physical infirmity. Everyone takes it when they are walking up the mountain. Even the most trained and experienced people, overcoming physical fatigue again and again, produces a force called volition. There is nothing that gives more strength than overcoming. Walking and living man doesn’t care about the goal, he cares about the way to overcome the long, filled with unrest, weaknesses, passions, lifts and all other, which is manifested in your heart as long as we strive for the goal.
