British Columbia Tourism Region : Cariboo Chilcotin Coast
- Chilko River - from a Chilcotin Indian word meaning 'ochre river.' (See Chilcotin River.)
- Dawn Treader Mountain named after the boat in C.S. Lewis's The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.
- Elkin Lake - After Ed Elkins, an Englishman who in 1890 became the first white settler in the Nemaia Valley, operating a trading post with his Indian wife. He left about 1900 after his brother, who had a post north of Tatlayoko Lake,
- was murdered by an Indian.
- Fishem Lake - Obviously good fishing here. The Chilcotin Indian name is Nach'eznadinlin, meaning 'river going off into lake.' A very short river empties Fishem Lake into Upper Taseko Lake.
- Lastman Lake - Chilcotin Indians raided the camp here of a party of Shuswaps from Soda Creek, killing all but one man.
- The survivor escaped and got home. Subsequently a revenge party from Soda Creek caught up with the Chilcotins at Kleena Kleene and inflicted casualties before returning to Soda Creek.
- Liberated Group - So named after the women's liberation movement. Mountains in this group are named after notable women such as Agnes Macphail, Nellie McClung, and Charlotte Whitton.
- Lord River - Lord was the maiden name of Mrs. J.D. Mackenzie, who accompanied her husband into this area in 1920.
- Nemaia(h) Valley - This fine valley is named after a Chilcotin Indian, possibly a chief who left Redstone village and, with a small band, settled in this valley.
