The Ancient Temple is a new special location in Monster Hunter Y.
It is an aged temple hidden in the depths of the Tropics, and is known for its deadly traps and deadly monster battles.
Situated in a small clearing near the temple, the Base Camp allows players to look at the antiquity of the edifice, the spacious night sky above it, and the massive jungle behind it.
A large area with large stone walls, an exposed square roof supported by a row of columns spanning everywhere near the walls, and 3 raised, receding stone platforms spanning around the main square. On the wall of the 2nd platform that faces the entry to the area, there is a Dragonator that can be activated by a small plate on the 3rd platform. Great Thunderbugs are always present here.
- Traps: On two walls of the 2nd platform, there are a row of holes that can shoot arrows or blow out fire whenever activated by a small plate in front of the platform. Although these traps are harmful to hunters, they could also be used to damage monsters.
