|Location||Northern White Mountains|
|Description||Large mountain, jagged snow-clad peak|
|Etymology||Anglicized Rohirric "stark" + "horn"|
|References||The Muster of Rohan|
The Starkhorn was one of the largest of the White Mountains. It was a snow-clad peak that rose in the inner regions of the mountain range. From its feet sprang the Snowbourn, whose widening valley ran northwards through the mountains to emerge onto the plains of Rohan. The Rohirrim called that valley Harrowdale, and built their courts of Edoras at its mouth, from where the lonely white peak of the Starkhorn could be seen along the straight length of the valley. On a cliff above the valley they built the refuge of Dunharrow.
