The Orocarni was a mountain range in the far east made by the Valar before Arda was marred and the symmetry was lost in the wars against Melkor.[1]

On the western slopes of the Orocarni grew the Wild Wood, and near a great waterfall of a river that flowed into the Inland Sea of Helcar the bay of Cuiviénen lay, where the Elves woke.[2][3]

At their northern edge the Orocarni connected with the Ered Engrin,[1] forming a situation much as the Ered Luin in the far west.

The Eastern Dwarfs is a book series about the four dwarf houses in the far east of Middle Earth.
