The mountain towers above the valleys and towns. From it, you can see the world, hidden from sight by the boulders and crevices in which we live. We characterize the visual elements of our surroundings, we look to have been made of rocks themselves and are as tough as our surroundings (Zeldapedia).
We are the Goron peoples of Death Mountain (Zeldapedia). It receives its name from the smoke and ashes that rise from the volcano centered in the mountains (The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess). People fear the flames and heat, the sputtering lava that slosh within the bowels of the mountain. It is not often frequented by visitors.
