Mountains and high points seem to have strong religious significance and symbolism.
Many Biblical prophets climbed high mountains for visions or to be closer to God.
Non-Christian religions too seem to attach the spiritual to high mountains.
For a newspaper project I'm working on, I wondered what the feelings of some forum users might be on this topic (with or without being specific on your religious preference) ----
Are mountain tops more than bird's-eye panoramas? Is there a religious or spiritual aspect that can be found there too?
