The Best Adventure Spots in Neopia
TROPICAL FOOD SHOP - After a loooong walk around the beach, I find myself here
in this tiny shop, poking sardplants.
Are those things safe to eat? Anyway, this island is huge! Walking all the way
around it was no easy task. But at last, I'm back to where I started. The reason
for this hike? To make a guide on the best adventure spots in all of Neopia, of
course! Well, enough of my rambling. With the help of my Kougra, the adventuring
expert, here is the guide of the Mystery
The-island-which-the-rock-pool-is-located-on: Yes, with no other name,
the-island-which-the-rock-pool-is-located-on is a perfect adventure spot. Whether
you take a boat, swim across, or attempt to lob yourself out of a tree that
vaguely resembles a slingshot (such as my Kougra and I did), this island is
not very hard to get to (unless you use my slingshot idea). Once you're there,
a magnificent jungle awaits you, complete with a tribe of coconut-flinging Myncis,
a very old and very large statue covered in moss, and a scenic crystal-clear
lake. I recommend you don't wander too far in though, because that's where the
tribe of Myncis is. I just got away….Skill Level: intermediate - advanced
Techo Mountain: Techo
Mountain stands at an amazingly high height, and it sure isn't easy to climb.
Very few Neopians have reached the top, and my Kougra and I only got about 1/4
of the way before we got too exhausted too continue. Techo Mountain is pretty
dangerous, and very, very cold. If you do go up, remember to wear extra woolly
socks! Unless Samrin
the Kacheek comes running after you wanting his Babaa back, then you run…
fast… Skill Level: depending on how far you go, advanced - extremely
Palm Tree Beach: Palm Tree Beach is on the West side of Mystery Island.
It's a relaxing place, where most of the sporting events take place. All day
long there are Neopians surfing, playing beach-volleyball, swimming and doing
a number of other activities, until the sun starts to set and the lovers come
out (that's when my Kougra and I left). It you go further north, where less
people are, you will find the real adventure: caves, tide pools, and an extremely
large hold dug in the sand that I fell into. Perfect for the younger adventurer.
Skill Level: beginner
Snuffles the Cave-rock Thingy: Since it had no name, my Cybunny took
the liberty to name this cave herself. Out in the ocean, a bit closer to Maraqua,
there is a strange cave on top of a rock. It seems to be abandoned from the
outside, but on the inside there are stairs leading downwards, and a fresh set
of muddy footprints. The torches are lit. It's obvious that someone has been
there recently. The place doesn't seem to be too dangerous, but just to be safe,
I'm practicing my NeoFu a bit before I go back there… Skill Level: intermediate,
it's better safe than sorry.
Kougra Jungle: Named after its main inhabitant, Kougra Jungle is home
to over 70% of the island's Kougras. The scenery here is breathtaking -- a wide
river flows through the middle, the treetops brush against the sky, and the
plant-life is beautifully green. The outer edges are quite safe, and it's easy
to find your way out, but as you go in deeper, the trees crowd together, and
less sunlight gets through. You can also meet some very territorial Kougras.
It's a good thing we brought my pet's Battledome weapons. I'd advise you to
always bring some sort of Battledome weapon with you when you go adventuring.
Skill Level: depending on how far in you go, anywhere from beginner -
Cannibal Village: Cannibal Village is famous for hosting the game show
a few years ago, and it's been noisy and boisterous ever since then. Don't bring
too many NPs with you, because the natives have a way to trick you into buying
overly-priced items, and making unfair trades. That's what happened to my Eo
codestone. Well actually it was stolen when I tripped over my untied shoelace,
but that's not the point. Anyway, Cannibal Village may not seem like much of
an adventure spot, but they say that the Coco's buried treasure deep beneath
the ground…. My Kougra even found an Eo codestone there! Oh….. wait! Skill
Well, that's it for Mystery Island's adventure spots! Now for some equipment
and other things you might need to remember whenever exploring on this tropical
- Water, and plenty of it. Mystery Island gets pretty hot, even in the winter,
and you don't want to have to crawl back to your Neohome due to dehydration.
- Bring a Silver Butter Knife
if you go into the jungles; there are lots of herbs there that would be good
in healing potions. Or poisons, if you cook the way I do. Your choice.
- Try not to make Jhuidah
mad. Ever since she got stuck in a bottle during the Mystery Island mystery,
she's been rather upset. Well, annoyed is more appropriate. Anyway, after she
wouldn't give me my prize when I made what should be a successful mixture in
that cooking pot, I got the hint and stayed away. She never really did like
- Visit the Island
Mystic before you set off. When he's not in a bad mood, he'll give you a
special prediction about your adventure. Sometimes it can be really useful!
Once he told me that we were going to drown, so we stayed away from the water.
But we ended up almost drowning anyway, if it wasn't for the Tombola
man saving us only to try and sell us Tiki tack junk. When the Island Mystic
makes predictions, there's no changing them.
And that's all for Mystery Island! Read my next article for more of Neopia's
best adventure spots! See ya!
Today's random adventuring tip: Always bring your sense of direction, and
trust your second instinct. I meant first instinct. Or… just bring a map.
