The Reach FLEETCOM Military Complex in the Highland Mountains.

The Highland Mountains are alpine mountains located in the Viery Territory of the human colony, and UNSC fortress world Reach.[1] Located on Reach's northernmost continent,[2] the mountains were made of granite[3] and were home to many facilities used by the UNSC.

History[edit]

After the Fall of Reach on August 30, 2552, these mountains were the only area not glassed by the Covenant, though glassing did occur in the area on a small scale.[4] The Covenant concentrated their forces in the region and set up an extensive excavation operation around Menachite Mountain in order to uncover a massive subterranean Forerunner structure.[5]

Geography[edit]

The Military Wilderness Training Preserve within the Highland Mountains.[1]

Wild blueberry bushes and cedar trees grew in the mountains.[6]
