For advanced players. An isolated alpine region with very few shelters or resources. A true test of wilderness survival skills.
- In game description

Timberwolf Mountain is the fifth region to be introduced in The Long Dark. It's commonly considered the most difficult to survive in due to frigid temperatures (sub -20C/-4F almost every day) and frequent blizzards (usually at least three per week). These conditions limit the time a player can safely travel outside with anything less than top-quality clothing; the lack of warm indoor shelters means maintaining campfires is critical.

Overview[edit | edit source]

Timberwolf Mountain is described as pure wilderness with a mountainous expanse almost entirely lacking in man-made shelters. It has steep cliffs and ravines that require rope climbing to navigate to several locations.[1]

Connects to Pleasant Valley via a treacherous and cold mountain pass.

Another defining feature is the large plane that recently crashed on the mountain. The jet broke apart, littering the area with debris and pieces of the aircraft: two wings (one in the forest, another on the mountainside), the tail section, two wheels from the landing gear (one near the region entrance, another at the mountain's top) and two engines (one in the bottom of a ravine, the other near the exit from a cave near the river), as well as half the fuselage found near the top of the mountain. In addition, there are cargo containers from the plane scattered near the various plane components that, when opened with a hacksaw, can be looted for large amounts of a specific kind of item (e.g., canned food, medicine, or a class of clothing).

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Timberwolf Mountain hosts extreme environmental conditions and requires preparation to ensure survival during any expeditions or exploration. Wolves and bears constantly patrol areas of the map and there are few structures with little loot inside of them, so hunting and defending yourself are necessary ways to survive for an extended period of time. Despite what the name of the region might indicate, no timberwolves will ever be found.

A few hundred meters up the pathway from Pleasant Valley is Crystal Lake. On the shore is the Mountaineer's Hut, which is one of the only man-made shelters on the mountain.

The path to the summit is fairly linear. The destroyed plane at the summit contains many supplies, possibly including a distress pistol.
