Lithlad was a great plain in Mordor southeast of the plateau Gorgoroth in Núrn.
Long ages of continuous fallout from Mount Doom and possibly far older volcanoes enriched the area with great amounts of ash, which probably enhanced the ground making it ideal for dry-land farming.
Lithlad is a Sindarin word for 'ash-plain'.
