The Legend of Hao Jin
Wall of Heaven
The indomitable mountains known as the Wall of Heaven tower almost beyond mortal comprehension. This chain of peaks stretches from the arctic circle almost to the equator, and as such is the longest mountain range on Golarion. The jagged teeth of this vast range encompass countless mountaintops, many of which are in excess of 30,000 feet in height. The mountains have sacred names— Lamjung (“Dawn Herald”), Kanchung-La (“Peak That Has No Footprints”), and Targ Kang (“Tower to Heaven”). The mightiest peaks lie west of Shaguang, in a region known as Gorak Tcho, a realm rumored to harbor nightmarish and otherworldly creatures. The greatest mountain, the Himcho (“Mother of the World”), towers at a staggering height of 37,400 feet. Pilgrims of various gods make their way to temples at its mighty feet. While only those with magical protection can survive the eternal winter amid the airless peaks of these mountains, monks, oracles, and other hermits make their homes in all parts of the mountains. Some orders (such as those of Irori) prefer seclusion, and build incredible monasteries on high slopes and passes.
