The Land of the Sun is an empty land east of Middle-earth where the sun rises at dawn. Nothing is known of its geography except that there was a curve-shaped mountain range called the Wall of the Sun that corresponds symmetrically to the Pelóri Mountains of Aman.

In the Ambarkanta it is called the Dark land of the Sun.[1] There is a possibility the Númenóreans visited it.[source?]

Other names

In the game Middle-earth Role Playing by Iron Crown Enterprises, a Sindarin name for the land — Romenor (Easternesse) — was given,[source?] although it does not appear in any of Tolkien's writings. This name is also used in Michael Martinez' Parma Endorion.
