In Monster Hunter World (MHW) Iceborne expansion there are 60 Treasure Locations. This page shows where to find all of these collectibles. 

Ten treasures can be found in each region. In order to start hunting treasures you will have to reach Unity Level 6 with the grimalkyne faction in the region you want to search for treasures (Bugtrappers for Ancient Forest, Plunderers for Rotten Vale, Gajalaka for Elder’s Recess, Protectors for Wildspire Waste, Troupers for Coral Highlands, Boaboa for Hoarfrost Reach).

Note: Certain treasure tips seemingly will not be given to you until you are at/past a certain Rank. For instance, the Bugtrappers will not give you Treasure Tip #3 until you are at High Rank, and will not give you Treasure Tip #6 until you are at Master Rank, regardless of how much you use pawswap. The first four tribes don't follow this pattern exactly - some may end the High Rank requirement at #2, or the Master Rank Requirement at #5 for instance -  but it is nonetheless something to keep in mind, including for the Gajalaka tribe. The Boaboa tribe do not have any such restrictions, presumably because Master Rank must be unlocked before they can be interacted with. Also, it's possible (if unlikely) to get more than one treasure trip per trip - if a treasure tip is given after the first and/or second pawswap, you can find the treasure, go back to pawswap-ing, and potentially get another tip from the remaining use(s).

Getting all treasures unlocks the following trophies and achievements:

  • Fledgling Collector – Find your first treasure.
  • Veteran Collector – Find all treasure within a single locale.
  • Ultimate Collector – Find all treasure.

Jump out while aiming your camera upward; only after you jump can another high-up wedge beetle be seen, which is required to proceed (this can take many tries; the Glider Mantle is recommended to give some extra hang-time). Once done, there will be a high ledge, which requires using the nearby air-vent - take off your Glider Mantle for this part - and you will come to a small, winding path that is the top of the region.

      You need certain "?" feline items to progress. My friend level was over 10 and the 2nd quest wasn't unlocked until I gave them a "?" item from another feline tribe.

          A maybe interesting information is that all tribes use the dust and poder items you "fed" them, herbal powder is expecially handy, but they even use demon and hardshell powder.

            I agree with the bottom comment. For Tip #10... If a person has never tried to capture the "wintermoon Nettle" then they will most probably be lost. For that, here is my own revision:

            Hoarfrost = Treasure #10 Is directly next to the "Dragon Husk". You can reach the location by using the same path for the "Wintermoon Nettle" (More Info In the Wikia). once you reach the very top, instead of turning left walk to the right side, until you reach The Dragon's Carcass.

              Out of the 3 trades you can do each visit to the map, if you get a treasure tip on the 1st or 2nd trade, don't do the 3rd trade yet. Just go find the treasure & after that come back to complete 3rd trade. You will likely get another tip as I got them on few occassions. Seems to work with most tribes.

                Not the most precise guide but a godsend nonetheless. Found every one easily, but then again I'm 350+ hours in and know the maps already. May want to touch up for those not so observant players...

                  While it's nice that someone went through the effort of uploading images and some text for each treasure's location, just pasting all those images on this page makes it a pain in the ass to navigate.
