Before people understood science and what caused volcanoes, ancient peoples believed that monsters inhabited the mountains. They believed mountain forests filled with beauty and hidden dangers like gorges served as the home for supernatural creatures like faeries and elves or gods.
This old belief that mountains housed monsters and gods probably led to the Greek myths of the gods living on Mount Olympus.
Mountains are an awesome sight to behold even for modern people so it’s easy to imagine how ancient peoples formed their beliefs.
