The only one way across the great mountain range that divides Maini, is by using the large "climbing plants" that grow or have been grown across the sheer cliff faces in several places. The roads leading to this mountain pass of Maini have long since fallen into disuse and been neglected, but the way is still relatively easy to find.
Under and within the mountains, near the mountain pass, can be found a confusing labyrinth of interlinking caves on several levels. Explorers are advised to be careful about entering these caves, but they do contain some riches to be found. They are, however, populated by kritahs. These small animals are regarded as only a nuisance by the Mahinos and are quick to flee if they don't have overwhelming numbers on their side, but in the caves they get aggressive and can be quite dangerous, especially as they tend to attack in groups.
