Located at the base of Terror Mountain, Happy Valley is a scenic, small town to the north of Neopia Central. Happy Valley is down the mountain from the Ice Caves, providing a frosty paradise for the many snow enthusiasts who gleefully make their homes there. Happy Valley also serves as a home base for many visitors from around all Neopia, many of whom take day trips up to the Ski Slopes or bravely journey to the Snowager's Cave.
In addition to its limitless surroundings, Happy Valley has much to offer the thousands of visitors who pass through annually. It is known for spectacular vistas, cool summer nights, extraordinary clear stargazing, and wildlife sightings. Many have also come for the rare but spectacular sightings of the Snow Faerie; however, it is generally known that unless you have a quest, you only see Taelia when you need her most. In other words, when you're in trouble.
Imagine you and your pet nestled in a small, snow-covered valley, surrounded by beautiful, majestic mountains. Imagine skiing down snow-covered hills, throwing snowballs, making slushies, and building snowforts. Just listen to the gentle sound of snow falling around you. That is Happy Valley.
