The Forest and Hills region is a reappearing area seen in all the Monster Hunter games except Monster Hunter 3, Monster Hunter Portable 3rd, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate and Monster Hunter 4. It first appeared in Monster Hunter, where it was the first terrain you venture to. It's an easy land of neutral climate and temperature. It has a high vegetation of plant life, mushrooms, nuts and berries. Many hunters consider this to be a very desirable area to hunt in, due to its easy-to-navigate layout and memorable areas. Monsters who prefer more temperate weathers such as Yian Kut-Ku and Velociprey/Velocidrome tend to spend time here quite often. Rathalos and Rathian also consider this place a good nesting spot
