The ancient seat of the pandaren empire has been hidden for generations, shrouded in mists and walled-off by impassible mountains. The waters of the Vale are believed to have mystical powers... which has attracted the attention of ancient enemies as well as power-hungry factions within the Alliance and Horde. What secrets lie buried below this mystical font of power?
The Vale of Eternal Blossoms is located in the central part of Pandaria. this is the Highest level subzone in the continent, laid away to hold the Pandaren versions of the Horde and Alliance Capital, and unlike the other zones only serving dailys and a few refular quests, as the zone is 90-90, not leveling any players. Within this area is the first announced raid of the Mists of Pandaria expansion, Mogu'Shan Vaults, and two dungeons, Mogu'Shan Palace and the Gate of the Setting Sun.
The majority of the Vale is covered in golden-leaved trees, giving the zone an eternally autumn feel. Paired with this are the vibrant golden grasses and many sources of water. Pools dot the landscape in the east, while a central lake and waterfall can be found near the central region. A much higher lake in the very northwestern section, close to the ruins.
Both factions enter the Vale from Kun-Lai Summit via the Gate of the August Celestials by quest at around lv 87. The gate is located in the south-central part of the Summit and opens into the northern part of the Vale via the Golden Stair. the gates will stay open, although after the special quest scene mogu move into the gate area, making it unsafe to travel in if you're lower than lv 90, so its a good suggestion to set your Heartstone on the Local Shrine where you come in, allowing easy transport back to the older parts of the world and flight paths connected to Pandaria
