| || Well, that's not its name ... but ...
The term "Tarrlok's hideout" has not been confirmed by official sources.
After Tarrlok defeated Korra in a duel at City Hall, he placed her in the back of a police truck and drove her to his hideout hidden in the mountains surrounding Republic City. Tarrlok told Korra that no one would ever find her there, and that she would never see Republic City again. Once they arrived at the hideout, the councilman carefully used bloodbending to entrap Korra in a metal box that was inside the cabin, and then returned to City Hall as soon as he had finished his task.
Later, while searching for Korra in Republic City, Tenzin, Lin Beifong, and Team Avatar realized that it was Tarrlok who had kidnapped Korra, and they soon confronted the bloodbender at City Hall. With his secret out, Tarrlok bloodbent his accusers and made a hasty retreat back to his cabin in the mountains.
While imprisoned in the hideout's cellar, Korra meditated and had visions of Aang, Sokka, and Toph at Yakone's trial, learning that Yakone possessed the same bloodbending abilities that Tarrlok had demonstrated during their duel.
Upon Tarrlok's return to his hideout and his blaming Korra for ruining his life, Korra stated that she knew that he was Yakone's son. He then told her of how he had to recreate his identity in order to hide the ties between himself and his father. Tarrlok then told Korra that he would once again begin a new life and that she was going to come with him as his prisoner. Just as the councilman was preparing to leave, he was stopped by Amon, who, alongside several Equalists and the Lieutenant, had come to the cabin to capture the Avatar. Tarrlok easily took out all of the Equalists except for Amon with his bloodbending, who was able to resist Tarrlok's bending with his own bloodbending. The Equalist leader quickly moved in and took away Tarrlok's bending, and then placed him inside a truck parked outside the cabin.
Meanwhile, the Lieutenant, along with various other Equalists, entered the building's basement, intending to capture the Avatar. The Lieutenant, acting on Amon's order, electrocuted the box, but due to some quick thinking, Korra was able to avoid being electrocuted. As soon as the Equalists opened the metal box, Korra unleashed a barrage of bending and escaped outside. Once she escaped, the Avatar launched a number of large icicles at Amon, who ran after her in pursuit. Korra managed to escape by using her waterbending to snowboard down the mountainside, but ended up crashing. She was found by Naga soon after, and the two returned to Republic City.
Tarrlok's hideout, despite being located on a mountainside at a high altitude, is easily accessible via automobile from Republic City. The cabin is brown and made primarily from wooden planks, though many are fragmented and decaying. Two rectangular windows, one of which has curtains, can be found to the side. The building's interior, although spacious, is not well-kept and quite run-down. Numerous different pieces of worn-out furniture dot the structure's upper level, which has an elevated and slanted ceiling. A stairway at the rear of the house leads down to the basement, and a highly secure metallic cage lies at its center. This room has only one lamp, which points downward and directly toward the cage.
- Apart from several parts of the Southern Water Tribe shown in "Welcome to Republic City" and "Endgame", Tarrlok's hideout is the only location shown outside of Republic City in the first book of The Legend of Korra.
- Coincidentally, in each of these instances, the places outside of Republic City shown were covered in snow.
