South Gondor, known in Sindarin as Harondor, was a disputed region between the rivers Poros and Harnen. The Harad Road ran across South Gondor. Its climate was described as fluctuating between mild winters and very hot and dry summers.
In fact, Harondor was part of Gondor until the Kin-strife and frequent assaults and invasions by the Corsairs of Umbar and the Haradrim meant that, by the later years of the Third Age, Gondor lost control over this region.
During the War of the Ring, it was often described as a "debatable and desert land" on maps.
