The Gorge (Japanese 峡谷, Korean 협곡) is a area that was introduced in Monster Hunter Frontier Version 4.0. Its existence was revealed on November 14th, 2008. It is home to deep trenches, underground lakes, volatile weather, and many exotic species such as Berukyurosu and Pariapuria; other large migratory monsters are often found here as well, such as Tigrex and the widely adaptive Rajang.
The area also features two types of cactus, which can have blue or red flowers and juice. Breaking any of these and getting the juice on a hunter will give a defense boost from blue and a attack boost from red.
At night the land is drenched with heavy rain and rumbling thunder storms.
The Gorge features several dry areas surrounded by canyon walls, as well as caves containing underground lakes. A wide variety of monsters inhabit the areas, including: Espinas Subspecies, Rajang, Tigrex, Dyuragaua, Pariapuria, Rathalos, Rathian, Unknown (Black Flying Wyvern), Yian Garuga and Berukyurosu.
The aggressive cannibalistic Tricolored Eel/サンショウナギ that seem to be favorite food of Pariapuria, can be fished out in the cave and at the river. Other unusual fish include Sogekisu/ソゲキス a fish that hunts by shooting its prey with water with pressure so strong it even uses it under water, Ancient Fish and Surprisingly Springnight Carp who are found in Pokke Farm near the Snowy Mountains when breeding.
Unlike most areas in the series, the land has unusual changes per each quest with breakable and invincible obstacles in the area. These include tall, extremely thick grass like plants that only cutting damage breaks, giant rib bones as large as the hunters themselves only breakable with impact damage, strange stalagmites on the ground, and more.
