Hyarmentir was a mountain southeast of Valinor in Aman.


Hyarmentir was the highest mountain peak in southern Aman. Ungoliant's Lair was located south of it.[1] Before they destroyed the Two Trees, Melkor and Ungoliant gazed upon the bliss of the Blessed Realm from one of its highest peak.[2]


Hyarmentir is a Quenyan word that meant 'South Watch'.[3]
