The Peak before its destruction.

The Peak of Serenity was a hidden monastery and sanctuary located high in the north-central reaches of Pandaria's Kun-Lai Summit. It served primarily as a training ground and place of refuge for monks, and was easily accessible to them through [Zen Pilgrimage]. In this way, it served a very similar function for monks as Moonglade did for druids and Acherus: The Ebon Hold did for death knights. Currently, the location is still accessible to characters below level 100 for game-play purposes but gets destroyed by the Legion during the third invasion of Azeroth.


Legion This section concerns content exclusive to Legion.

It was destroyed by the Burning Legion during the third invasion of Azeroth, with the surviving monks moving to their new order hall, Shen-zin Su, also known as the Wandering Isle.

However, several NPCs are still there. Some of them are stuck in the Legion structure, and Zidormi can make you travel back to before the Legion attack.

In World of Warcraft

While anyone is welcome to visit the monastery, it is only accessible through flying, or by a long and winding journey by ground mount. Portals to Stormwind and Orgrimmar can be found within the main hall atop the Peak to facilitate outbound traffic.

The Peak itself features several areas, including a large training ground, a hot spring, a small pavilion with several vendors and profession trainers, and shrines to each of the four August Celestials. Each shrine hosts a group of monks studying the discipline or style of its respective Celestial, three of which (Ox, Tiger, and Serpent) are the inspirations of a playable monk specialization (Brewmaster, Windwalker, and Mistweaver, respectively). Students of the Crane focus on academic learning over martial prowess, and as such can be found poring over ancient scrolls and texts rather than sparring.

Notably, there are vendors at the Peak of Serenity that will allow monks to purchase class-specific consumables, armor and weapons, many of which have unique and distinct models. Monks may purchase tiger and serpent brews from Master Chang, class quest reward belts from Master Cannon, class quest reward staves (as well as  [Meditation Manual: Zen Flight]) from Master Hwang, and fist weapons from Master Tan. All of these armor and weapon models are transmogrifiable.

This article or section includes speculation, observations or opinions possibly supported by lore or by Blizzard officials. It should not be taken as representing official lore.

When Kang started teaching the way of the monk to the pandaren slaves, he eventually relocated with his followers to Kun-Lai Summit in order to escape the wrath of their mogu oppressors. In secret, the pandaren built a monastery among the wind-lashed peaks and kept training for their revolution.[1] This monastery probably ended up as the Peak of Serenity temple or the Temple of the White Tiger.
