The mountain king is a snake found in the mountainous regions of the Aiel Waste.


The red-headed mountain king has rings of red and white that strips its body. Within a hour the venom of its bite causes first of all tremors than cramping followed by full-body paroxysms ending in death.[1] Nynaeve al'Meara is warned by Amys that a mountain king is as deadly in the dream as it is in the waking world.[2]
