- "A Nora village, up on the heights."
- ―Aloy, upon first sighting Mother's Rise
Mother's Rise is the smallest of the Nora villages. It rests on the mountainside in the mountain ridge that forms the eastern wall of the Embrace. It is accessible by following the road north out of the Northern Embrace Gate. Its location high in the mountains allows the Nora watchtowers a clear view of the hunting grounds and the ruin site Devil's Thirst.
Mother's Rise is one of only two Nora settlements not situated within the tribe's central territory, known as the Embrace. For this reason, the village is a key stopping point for young Nora hunters venturing outside of the Embrace for the first time.
