Dol Baran

Revision as of 16:59, 1 April 2010 by Sage (Talk | contribs)

Dol Baran was a hill in the land of Rohan, the last southern outpost of the northern range of the Misty Mountains. It was rounded and covered with heather.

It was here that Peregrin Took looked into the Palantír of Orthanc.[1]


The name means "Shaven hill" (dol + paran) referring to its lack of trees.[2]
