A mountain with the life of its own that features in the Hungarian story of the hero Third Almafie. Third Almafie went to a mountain to find instruction to find the well of the Sorcerer Deceit. He journeyed through the forests and climbed the mountain. In a cave of the mountain he found a slab of stone that told him how to awaken the mountain. He went outside and cut down some pine trees. He then moved these pine trees into a large cave and burnt them. When the last of the embers died out the mountain awoke and gave the hero directions and instructions on how to find the well he was searching for.
