The Pelóri, also known as the Mountains of Aman, Mountains of Defence, and the Mountain Wall, were a mountain range in Aman that separates the inner plains of Valinor from Eldamar and the wastelands of Araman and Avathar.[1][2]

HistoryEdit

The Pelóri were originally created after the destruction of Almaren and the Two Lamps to hide and protect Valinor from any further attacks by Melkor. Taniquetil is its highest peak and home to the throne of Manwë.[3] Hyarmentir is the second highest peak. [4] The Calacirya is the only safe pass through the range.

The Pelóri are the tallest mountains in Arda and were raised to an unimaginable height after the escape of Melkor from Aman.[5] They were also very dark and smooth on the outside, with nothing to grasp on to, making any attempt to scale the cliff impossible.

EtymologyEdit

Pelóri was a Quenya word that meant 'fencing or defensive heights'.[6]
