Avathar was a dark strip of land at the feet of the southern Pelóri mountain range in Aman.[1]


Avathar was a wasteland devoid of all life save for the Great Spider Ungoliant whose home was there before she agreed to go with Melkor to Middle-earth. After Melkor left Valinor, the Valar, believing that their foe had fled to Middle-earth to his old hiding places, did not think him still in Aman and did not find him here.[2]


Avathar is a Quenya word that apparently meant 'shadows'.[3]
