 Sacred Mountains of China
Another reason for the sanctification of particular mountains are the legends and myths of both shamanism and early Taoism.

The mountain areas where these sages dwelled came to be regarded as sacred places, as access points to the heavenly realm, and also as the abodes of magical spirits and powerful deities (in the Chinese context a sacred mountain can mean a single peak, a cluster of hills, or a whole mountain range).
