Kalórmë (Q, pron. [kaˈloːrme]) was a mountain, the highest peak of the Wall of the Sun in the Land of the Sun. It corresponded to the Taniquetil far in the West of Arda.

It is notable that "Kalórmë" violates normal Quenya phonotactics, by allowing a long vowel before a consonant cluster. Normally, this would be shortened to "Kalormë".
