Tumladen was the name for the hidden valley within the Encircling Mountains where the Elven city of Gondolin was built during the First Age.

Turgon, a king of the Noldor, discovered Tumladen under the divine guidance of the Vala Ulmo, Lord of Waters.

plain that was of a marvellous level, broken but here and there by boulders round and smooth which lay amid a sward, or by pools in rocky beds. Many fair pathways lay across that plain[1]
