The tropical rainforest known as the Yuhtunga Jungle comprises the majority of the Elshimo Lowlands. Due to the hot and humid conditions found throughout the area, a variety of plant life, from giant vines to carnivorous flowers, has evolved over the centuries. In the southernmost part of the jungle, a number of small waterfalls can be found in a place known as the Hidden Valley. According to local legend, faeries gather around the falls, and the Mithra of Kazham often travel here as part of their purification rituals.

Points of Interest

  • Adventurers who are levels 20-23 can fight mandragoras just outside of Kazham.
  • The outpost in this zone is at G-11.
  • The notorious monster Rose Garden spawns in place of the Overgrown Rose next to the outpost. The Overgrown Rose can't be killed or aggroed for roughly 10 hours. The Rose Garden eventually turns into Voluptuous Vilma.
  • The fastest way to Yhoator Jungle is to drop down the hole at H-6 and follow the path southwest.


The Map of the Elshimo Regions can be purchased from Promurouve in Lower Jeuno or Rusese in Upper Jeuno. The following map is provided courtesy of Vanadiel Atlas.

Okay, so, after it rained one day, I was wandering around looking for Lizards... for the Yhoat tele quest. So I stumble upon (H-9) and I find something I had never seen before... a clump of white mushrooms on a wall. It was weird, I thought it may have been for a quest, because I went back to Kazham to buy a sickle, and when I came back.... it was gone.

So, I think it only appears for a small window of time after it rains, and then goes away. I've got my Room-mate's account logged in at the wall to see if the mushrooms pop up again.

Maybe I'll get a King Truffle, who knows. :P

Since Sandy has upper and lower elshimo for this week i decided to do the supplies quests for both areas. Imagine my suprise when I FINALLY found the outpost in yuhtunga and gave the guy the supplies...and no one offered to teleport me! All the other ones I have done let me teleport back home straight away, so I was shocked(and scared because there was this huge malboro looking thing called overgrown rose hovering around the area)that I couldn't teleport back home. Is there someone else around that i missed? I only saw a two people there by my flag. Needless to say, i am not touching yhoator until i can be sure I am gonna be able to get out of there quickly. lol. I am only level 34, but I am doing this now so I can come back easy later on. Any ideas?

There is a hole you drop through @ (G-11). Just keep heading west after that. If you run through the zone a few times, you'll get your bearings.

Saying that this map is confusing would be the understatement of a lifetime. If anyone has a logical way of reading this map, please post an explaination, thanks.
# Jun 08 2006 at 5:08 PM Rating: Decent
Sure, this place is just a little confusing, but all that is irrelevant when you can jam out to the jungly song. It's such a break from the dunes and qufim; the sad lifeless {and unsongified) hellholes.

This place is more confusing than Where's Waldo. @.@

Anyway. Yush, I got my subjob to level 15, then went here 2 days ago, and have gained 3 levels since, almost 4. It's rather boring though, killing only Mandagoras and Goblins. O_<

How hard is it to get a party? Depends on your job. Bards are loved here, as are Ninjas. (I'm speaking from personal experince). I got a party within about 1 minute of turning my flag on. The second day, I got one within about 5 minutes. Just have patience. ^^

Went to Kazham, pick-up choco, NPC wants me to deliver this bird to SSG, so I did in 1hr, 42min which is not bad considering 1hr, 07min on the record.

Chocobo Quest
# Aug 11 2005 at 2:47 PM Rating: Decent
Does anyone have any idea of how to get from Kazham to the Norg entrance in under 2 minutes and 30 seconds? The chocobo quest gives you a Miratete's Memoirs if ya make it under that time. I was able to do 3:25 and the record on CaitSith is 3:16 so there must be a hidden path somewhere.

I just found a "luck rune" near the gates to kazham at the bottom of a hole, it is just a blacnk spot on the ground and when I click it nothing happens. I tried trading my 4-leaf mandra bud but nothing still, anyone know what this is for? I think it was added in the update but I cant tell, thnx ~Oro

Edit: its at H-6 and appears as LuckRune at the bottom of a hole.

Heh, I saw it too, in hopes that I'd get a sweet luck bonus, but nope:

There is nothing out of the ordinary.

There's a Luck Rune in Lufaise as well, in the corridor near the Dunes vortex (not the corridor WITH the vortex).

Anyone tried trading a lucky item to these yet?

if your wondering the minimum lvl
Preferably, but not set in stone, cuz ive seen 23's here (usually partying with uber 24/25). Some people dont come here at all, like nin's... i wouldnt recommend being main tank if your gonna come thru this place, these mandies double attack too much -.-;

Gemini Falls
# May 28 2005 at 9:22 PM Rating: Decent
In order to get to Gemini Falls you have to go through Ifrit's Cauldron. It is not a easy journey, especially since you have to go past the Ash Dragon to get there.
RE: Gemini Falls
# Sep 18 2005 at 11:21 AM Rating: Decent
What level would you need to be to get through to the falls? I'm a 55THF/NIN and I'm doing the Ivory quest in Khazam. Everyone says the best drop rate is around Gemini Falls. Can I make it without Tonko and/or oils or would I need both?

Thanks in advance

i dont know WHY you say GC is hell, every party i made goes there n we get 32-37 in one day. im not bashing u, just everyone needs to realize THF is your best friend if your coming here, dagger is best against bats. my pt setup was THF THF RNG NIN BLM BLM, then another time was THF RNG RNG BLM RDM NIN. too any new people (no so much as noobs) get your self a thf n watch their TASAVB (yes, TA then SA) hit LARGE number.

How do you get by Gemini Falls? The only path going down to it is blocked.
