The Howling Peak is located on Kaldir.

Game Map[]

The peaks serve as a game map in StarCraft II. There is a standard natural expansion outside each main base with a relatively wide choke to defend, said choke leading to a potential third base. There's a center to the map, but its geography is fragmented, and new routes of attack can be created by destroying destructible rocks. Destroying rock pillars can be used to defend a fourth expansion.[1]

Official Map Description[]

As you expand sideways, take control of the watch tower that overlooks the back door path.
