Le-Wahi - the massive jungle area around Le-Koro, is roamed by the Le-Matoran and diverse Rahi (specifically Nui Rama and Gukko), is located on the southern area of Mata Nui and is the location of Le-Koro, the village of Air. The area consists mainly of a swamp and jungle, and almost the entire ground level of Le-Wahi is taken up by the Fau Swamp. This is also the location of Toa Lewa's Suva. Le-Wahi is bordered by Kanae Bay, which feeds into Lake Pala. Local landmarks include:
-The Fau Swamp: A marshy area that extended through most of the jungle floor of Le-Wahi on the island of Mata Nui.
-Kanae Bay: A large bay in southern Le-Wahi. It was here that Toa Lewa's Toa Canister washed ashore.
-Nui-Rama Hive: A hive of Nui Rama in Le-Wahi, the Nui-Rama Hive is dangerously near Le-Koro, serving as a staging ground for attacks by tainted Rahi. It also hosts protodermis mines, presumably for Makuta. It can be considered the "base" from which the Rama would attack the Le-Matoran. These mines were enforced by odd taskmasters: glowing Hoto bugs that would deliver a shock to misbehaving Matoran.
"Turaga Matau's village, Le-Koro, lies hidden in Lewa's jungle region on the west of Mata Nui. The village is disguised to look like hanging jungle weeds to protect it from the evil beasts of Makuta. The tall trees of Le-Koro are jumping with life. Birds, insects and Matoran buzz about the treetops, chattering and shrieking. But Le-Koro's villagers live in fear of the dark swamp that lies beneath their treetops."
The Le-Wahi treetops that grow in Le-Koro are located in Lake Kanae. The village mainly consists of trees, bushes, grass, swamps, wetlands, and many other plant-covered areas; the houses are all in the trees. At the edge of the village, the frigid Ko-Wahi region began. The village itself, however, was in Le-Wahi. The Le-Matoran live in dangling huts which resemble bee hives, and some trees are flattened half-way up in order to build Kolhii Fields or a central area. Le-Koro is also famous for its "Treespeak", the Le-Matoran version of the matoran language. Here, the Le-Matoran perform day to day activities such as Disk throwing or playing music. The village is ruled by Turaga Matau and at one time was protected by Lewa, Toa of Air. Le-Koro is also home to the Gukko Force, led by Kongu.
Places of interest include Le-Kini (the location of Le-Koro's temple; Le-Matoran went here to honor Lewa), Lewa’s Suva, and The Temple of Faith (also known as the Le-Koro Ruins, is a secret area above Turaga Matau's hut, so-named because it contained the Crystal of Faith)
