Selva de la Leche - Hillside at night.

Selva de la Leche ("Forest of Milk") is a tropical cloud forest in Central Heredia, Costa Rica. It is quite foggy for most of the year and thus hard to navigate. It is also home to many exotic species, and thus was a popular site for studying animals. It is composed of hills and jungle, and contained about 2500 species of plants, including 400 types of orchards. 500 species of butterflies and 400 species of birds also dwell within the area, and the area's bedrock was strong enough to allow Mayan ruins to survive earthquakes.

History

Peace Walker Incident

Main article: Peace Walker Incident

The Militaires Sans Frontières passed through Selva de la Leche during the Peace Walker Incident in 1974, while attempting to track down the AI lab headed by Dr. Strangelove. MSF commander Naked Snake first travelled there by mule, but the animal escaped when the Chrysalis AI weapon nearly spotted them, after which he continued on foot to Catarata de la Muerte. Several MSF members diverted from Snake's path to destroy a roadblock so that he could easily return to the area. Snake did so when he was forced to track down a CIA mercenary in possession of an ID card, in order to gain access to the AI lab.

The MSF later returned to Selva de la Leche to track down the KGB agent Vladimir Zadornov, after he had escaped from Mother Base's brig.[1] After recovering Zadornov, the latter expressed irritation that he had been close to successfully escaping as Big Boss reported in that he got him.[2] They also committed various operations in the area, including a stealth operation, a sweep operation, and the extraction of a researcher who had defected from Peace Sentinel.

Walkthrough

Main Ops

Travel to the Cloud Forest

"Miller: Snake, Peace Walker is the heart of the enemy's project. To prevent its completion, you'll need to either shut down or destroy the artificial intelligence that functions as its brain. According to Huey, that AI is now undergoing final calibrations in Strangelove's lab. It's inside a tropical cloud forest. Slip in and terminate that AI before they ship it out."

Head to the AI Lab

"Miller: Snake, infiltrate Dr. Strangelove's research lab and either deactivate or destroy the AI. The lab's built into some ancient ruins, so find those first!"
―Mission select briefing for "Head to the AI Lab"

Locate the ID Card

"Miller: Snake, to gain access to the lab you'll need an ID card. You can get one from a guard in an orange jacket stationed in an area where you can hear quetzals singing. To get the ID card from the soldier, do a body check. You've got to get inside that lab before the AI gets shipped out. Get a move on!"
―Mission select briefing for "Locate the ID Card."

[015] Fulton Recovery

"Miller: Let's get this mission started. Complete the mission and proceed to the Fulton recovery point so we can get you back alive and well. Good luck out there."
―Mission selection briefing for "[015] Fulton Recovery"

The player must find the researcher who is disguised as a scout. With the exception of the researcher who cannot attack and is only equipped with a banana, all the actual scouts carry suppressed M16A1 assault rifles. The researcher behaves no differently from the other scouts. Performing a Fulton Recovery on anyone other than the researcher or being detected will automatically deduct 30 seconds from the time limit allocated for the mission.

―Mission selection briefing for "[017] Fulton Recovery"

―Mission selection briefing for "[025] Fulton Recovery"

―Mission selection briefing for "[047] Perfect Stealth"
