Mount Livadiyskaya (Russian: гора́ Ливади́йская or со́пка Ливади́йская), unofficially known as Mount Pedan (Педа́н) or Mount Pidan (Пида́н) is one of the highest peaks in Shkotovsky District of Primorsky Krai, Russia.

Livadiyskaya is a part of the Livadiysky Range of the Sikhote-Alin.

The history of the mountain is often mystified, due to the presence of megaliths. These attract adepts of different neopagan and other faiths.

The mountain is a popular hiking spot, which has seen a surge in the number of ascensions in recent years. This has resulted in worsening contamination.
