I recently completed the Rank 36 Armorer quest, and found myself in the Ciedalaes, an archipelago of long islands south of Vylbrand, an otherwise unexplored and inaccessible region, but a unique region none-the-less. I didn't get to explore much, just Hope's Bourn, a very small island. But it got me thinking, what other unexplored regions might players have been to in various quests. I've only gotten significantly far into a handful of class storylines, so I ask others, any screenshots or info to share about inaccessible regions you've been to? Found out any neat information about an unexplored region through dialog?
I apologize for the spoilers if you click the images under Paglth'an, so if you don't want storyline spoilers (minor) and you haven't yet been to Paglth'an, don't click the links. For those of you who have, did anyone check the map and take a picture? Do you remember the name of the area we were in during the mission? Let me know so I can update it. And out of curiosity, does anyone have any info on Xelphatol? I'm curious what that region is, I'm guessing it's the Ixali home region, but that's only a guess, and I know nothing else about it.
I'll post any unique information or images about regions people have been to below.
For those looking to place these on the world map... See:

An island with some unique terrain, but textures and static meshes are all borrowed from La Noscea.
The home of the Amal'jaa, found east of Thanalan, presumably an erg (sandsea.)
An Amal'jaa camp, among some rocky formations on the edge of a sandsea.
