A map of the area intended for the scenario.

The Peak of Serenity is a hidden monastery and sanctuary located high in the north-central reaches of Pandaria's Kun-Lai Summit. It serves primarily as a training ground and place of refuge for members of the monk class, and is easily accessible to them through their [Zen Pilgrimage] ability, available at level 20. In this way, it serves a very similar function for monks as Moonglade does for druids and Acherus: The Ebon Hold does for death knights. While anyone is welcome to visit the monastery, the site's lack of a flight master or any in or outbound pathways means it can be reached by non-monk players only if they have learned [Wisdom of the Four Winds]. 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 from Master Hwang, and handwraps (invisible fist weapons) from Master Tan. All of these armor and weapon models are transmogrifiable.
