The Ash Mountains, or Ered Lithui, constituted a mountain range that formed the northern border of Mordor.

DescriptionEdit

According to the The Atlas of Middle-earth, the range was some 500 miles in length stretching from the Black Gate and Cirith Gorgor, where it met the Ephel Dúath in the west and Rhûn in the far east. Barad-dûr stood on an outcrop of this range on the plateau of Gorgoroth to its south.[1] These mountains may have been blackened by the volcanic activity of Mount Doom, hence the name.[citation needed]

EtymologyEdit

The Sindarin name Ered Lithui meant 'Ash Mountains' or 'Ashy Mountains'.[2]
