The Coral Highlands (Japanese 陸珊瑚の台地) is a location first introduced in Monster Hunter: World. It consists of a vast landscape like that of the ocean floor, the most notorious feature is the many species of coral, as its name implies. This area is comprised of steep cliffs that form a highland, hunters will traverse the colorful highlands and ominous lower levels to achieve their objectives.
This location contains unique flora and fauna not found elsewhere, like the Tzitzi-Ya-Ku and Paolumu, and at the top of the food chain, Legiana soars the highest areas, patrolling for intruders. Other kinds of fauna include ones that seem to mirror their ocean-living counterparts.
- Hunters can use the Glider Mantle to ride air currents and reach higher areas.
- The white flakes in the air are coral eggs. Some species, like Flying Wyverns and Wingdrakes, are known to gather in the Coral Highlands to feed on the coral eggs.
- Below the Coral Highlands is the Rotten Vale.
