A map of Forochel from The Lord of the Rings Online.

The area of Forodwaith that lay north of Eriador was known as Forochel, together with the great ice-bay and cape, which carried the same name. This area roughly corresponded with the area where the Blue Mountains and the Iron Mountains once met.[1]


Forochel was also around this area that the ancient stronghold of Morgoth, Utumno, was once located in the First Age. Forochel inhabited a tribe of brown skinned people called the Lossoth, or Snowmen. The chief of these tribes was given the Ring of Barahir.
