The Aquiferous Summit is a cave in the Sun-Speckled Terrace in Pikmin 4. It has two sublevels where Ice Pikmin can be found, totaling to 25, making it a good cave to farm this type. There are no enemies, but there are fire and ice-related hazards to be wary of. This cave has Icon that represents Sparklium on the wiki, based on the icon found in Pikmin 4. × 180 worth of treasure. It has an exit leading to the top of the hill, providing access to the otherwise unreachable fourth base of area, Distant Summit.

How to reach[edit]

It is the most remote cave in the area, being located far from the others a top a large hill. To get to it, head further up the hill where you find the Crackling Cauldron entrance. There is a buildable bridge guarded by three Male Sheargrubs. This bridge requires 39 raw materials to build, requiring the player rescue Russ to obtain the ability to do so. Once built, proceed forward up the hill, avoiding or defeating the three Dwarf Bulborbs along the path. At the top, you will find the cave's entrance on top of a high ledge requiring Oatchi to learn how to jump in order to reach.

The exit can also be used to re-enter the cave after it is complete, found directly next to the area's fourth base, Distant Summit.


Olimar's Voyage Log[edit]

I found a hole that should lead out to the top of the mountain, but the inside was more convoluted than expected, and only now do I see light at the end of the tunnel. If I ever make it out of this place, I'll deserve a good rest.

There are no enemies here, but Ice Pikmin are required to beat this sublevel. Collect the Pikmin you need from the small pond and hydro jelly and use them to freeze the big pond. Jump up to the platform and travel to the next level.

Sublevel 2[edit]
