Tumladen

Tumladen was the name for the hidden valley within the Encircling Mountains where the Elven city of Gondolin was built during the First Age. Tolkien's The Silmarillion tells how Turgon, a king of the Noldor, discovered Tumladen under the divine guidance of the Vala Ulmo, Lord of the Waters.
