If yes ...


What's the reason why Voltivare is known as Death Mountain ? .

Is it down to factual event/s or folklore ???
 
A Mountain named vottovarra / voltivare near the border with Russia

Ok, it's actually a sami name

"Votto" is the transcription of the Sámi word vuэjjtэ (pronounced "vuэyte") — to conquer, to overcome, to win. In the Finnish language: voitto — victory, and in the Karelian language: voitto — victory, profit (pronounced in both languages as "voitto").

So a victory Mountain. Couldn't find anything else.
