Valak Mountain is a very large area that is covered in snow, found on Bionis' right arm. Valak Mountain can be a bit of a confusing area, as there are some hoops to jump through in order to get to a few of the areas. First and foremost, some paths are blocked by chunks of ice and you will get the ability to melt those during the main story segment. There is a path near the Zokhed Pass landmark, which will eventually lead to an ice slide that should net you access to Three Sage Summit.

The other area that can be a bit hard to reach is the Antol Den. Once you have the Hollow Bone landmark, fast travel to it and there will be a cave right in front of you. This will lead to more ice slides and two jumps you need to make in order to reach the ledge with Antol Den. After the first jump, try to stick to the side when performing the second jump, as that might give you a little extra height.
