Map of the Mountains Region


Snowy Mountains are the closest area to Pokke Village, hence the first and easier missions taken place in the Snowy Mountains. Most of the upper areas and all of the caverns are freezing cold, so precautions must be taken to control bodily temperature. Some of the creatures that live here include Anteka, and Popo. Offensive creatures include Vespoid, Giaprey, and Blango, while Anteka are also mildly aggressive, attacking mostly when they are provoked. Bosses in the Snowy territory include Giadrome, Bulldrome, Blangonga, Khezu, Red Khezu, Tigrex, and Kirin.

Secret Passageway

Enter Area 8 from Area 6. Turn to your right. You'll see a small cave there. Crawl through it and descend. There is a gathering point for Mountain Herb and Sunset Herb to your left. Climb up 2 ledges and then, climb up a taller ledge using its rocky surface. Facing to your right, you'll see the skin of a Kushula Daora. The Kushala Daora is an elder dragon first encountered in a level 4 elder quest in MHF2. In one of the E3 Videos you see the Kushala Daora on top of the mountain and it sheds its skin then flys away. There is a mining spot located at one of its claws. Mine it not only for ores, but also for Khezu Whelps, which drains your health gradually when obtained. If doing a treasure hunting quest here and you receive a flag this is were you can put it for an immediate 3000 points. What you do is once you get to the part of the climb with the kushala skin you turn left from it and there will be another climbing spot. You will see a large pole and a few other things. Search in your usable items (were you chose what potions/meats/boosts to use) and find the flag. Run around on the peak (don't worry you can't fall off except for the point were you climbed up) until the X covering the picture disappears and color is added. There press the square button and you will put the flag on the poll and be rewarded with your 3000 points.
