A Giant from China wanted to prolong the days by preventing the sun from setting. One day he set off for the west horizon so that he could catch the sun before it set. When the orb of the sun was getting close to him he had a desperate thirst that he had to quench. He thus drank all the waters from the Yangtze and Huang Ho rivers. By this time the sun had set and he collapsed exhausted from his journey. He never woke again and his body became Mount Chiyu in the Shan Xi province. His staff became the sacred tree that bore the fruit of immortality for the gods.
