These are the areas featured in the world of Monster Hunter where hunters conduct their hunts. The hunting grounds are quite diverse, ranging from lush forests, to frozen tundras, to active volcanoes. Each area boasts its own unique roster of monsters, and offers a variety of useful resources, such as ore, herbs, insects and so forth.

From Generations 1 to 4, each hunting ground was divided up into multiple areas that required the player to load in each time they transitioned from one area to the next.

Generation 3 introduced the first hunting grounds to feature underwater areas, most notably the Flooded Forest and Deserted Island.

Generation 4 introduced hunting grounds with vertical elements, such as the Ancestral Steppe with its many cliffs. A few areas from previous generations were also updated to be less horizontal.

Generation 5 introduced the first hunting grounds to offer seamless maps with no loading zones. Each area also offered various interactive elements, such as environmental hazards and endemic life, which could be used to the player's advantage. This generation also introduced the concept of complete open zones, where the hunter could traverse the entire area and the concept of ‘invisible walls’ was largely removed.
