Hidden areas | The Hinterlands
Dragon Age: Inquisition Guide
1 - Passageway to Valammar
1a - Valammar key
2 - Redcliffe gate
The above map presents locations that are more difficult to access, which you can visit while exploring The Hinterlands.
You can enter Valammar only after you have obtained the key
Point 1 refers to the hidden passage behind the waterfall, to Valammar, i.e. the Deep Paths. The map for this location (M6) has been provided on the next page of this chapter. You visit Valammar while completing the "Deep Trouble" side quest. Note - Before you reach the passage behind the waterfall, you need to obtain the key to Valammar, which you can find in the villa in the South-Western part of the map (point 1a on the map). To learn more, see the walkthrough for the above quest.
Secure the Redcliffe entrance
Point 2 on the map marks the Redcliffe entrance. At first, you cannot enter the village and this does not change, up until you complete the "In Hushed Whispers" main quest. You need to eliminate the monsters spawned by the rift near the gate, for which you will be allowed into the village.
