|“We are flying to the Golden Peaks, birthplace of the Golden Weapons.”|
|— Garmadon to Fang-Suei in "Darkness Shall Rise"|
The Golden Peaks are a series of mountains in Ninjago where the Golden Weapons were created (using its gold), as well as the Mega Weapon. These mountains include a large volcano with unusual golden-colored lava in its crater, possibly molten gold.
The Golden Peaks existed before the First Spinjitzu Master, and along with the Temple of Light, they were originally the only locations to exist in Ninjago. The First Spinjitzu Master used gold from the peaks in order to make the Four Golden Weapons of Spinjitzu.
After Garmadon's banishment to the Underworld, Garmadon's brother Wu then sealed the Sword of Fire in the Fire Temple, the Shurikens of Ice in the Frozen Wasteland, the Nunchucks of Lightning in the Floating Ruins, and the Scythe of Quakes in the Caves of Despair in hopes of Garmadon never being able to find them.

- How the Golden Peaks were able to forge the Mega Weapon is unknown, since they merely served as a source of material when the First Spinjitzu Master was creating the Golden Weapons.
- The Golden Peak's existence also contradicts Ninjago's creation; the First Spinjitzu Master created Ninjago with the Golden Weapons, but used the volcano to create the weapons, implying it existed before he created the world.
