“Fire Mountain” sounds like a dangerous video game level, but actually it’s just the literal translation of this phrase’s building blocks: 火(fire) and 山 (mountain). Sometimes I’m a little worried about the fact that the ground beneath my feet is part of a constantly moving set of tectonic plates resting on a bed of magma, which is constantly looking for a way to escape to the surface! Yikes!

Pinyin: 火 huo3; 山 shan1
