The Ered Lómin were a range of mountains that formed the northwestern edge of Hithlum in Beleriand.

Ered Lómin is bordered on its east and southeastern side by the lands of Lammoth and Losgar. Hidden in this mountain range is Cirith Ninniach, and it is guarded by the Gate of the Ñoldor which is further up the cliff. The mountain range joins the Ered Wethrin in southern Dor-lómin.[1]


The route by which Fëanor and the rest of the Ñoldor took when they returned to Middle-earth and entered Hithlum was through these mountains. [2]


Ered Lómin is Sindarin for 'Echoing Mountains'.[3]
