The Tower is an ancient monolith, a testament to a lost civilization. It's purposes are unknown, but now it is in ruins, and powerful monsters inhabit the area. Many Elder Dragons and Wyverns inhabit the top of the Tower, a refuge from the brutal world of Monster Hunter.
 Tower Trivia
The Tower is unique in that any time you fall in battle there, you are said to 'temporarily retreat'. This places your Hunter in a room adjacent to the main battle area, and prevents the need to climb the long path to the top of the Tower. However, this does mean that use of a Farcaster is the most practical way of retreating to your campsite and supply box!
There are two varients of the Tower zone, with the Yamatsukami appearing in a raised area that is not found against any other enemy.
The Tower is also the scene of the famous 'White Fatalis' battle, and includes a raised perch that it utilises when performing it's signature attack.
