Highmountain is the home of the Highmountain tauren on the Broken Isles, and the drogbar led by Dargrul the Underking. Long ago, the tauren of Highmountain were united by Huln Highmountain to fight the Burning Legion during the War of the Ancients, and later the mountain was named so in Huln's honor.

Highmountain is one of the leveling zones in World of Warcraft: Legion.
