The pond was apparently a settlement at on point as there are ruined wagon and ruins of old houses here. However its inhabitants are either long dead or fled. In their place a special Hinox called Hinox (Youngest Kin) now resides here as part of the Shrine Quest "The Three Giant Brothers". Like the Hinox (Middle Kin) in Uten Marsh and Hinox (Oldest Kin) in Rabella Wetlands it wears one of the three Ancient Sphere required to reveal the Tawa Jinn Shrine. The Youngest Kin's boss health meter reveals that Hanu Pond is considered part of Mount Taran.
