Dol Tarlang

From Tolkien Gateway

Dol Tarlang was the northernmost of three peaks (the other two being Cûl Bîn and Cûl Veleg) located in the pass of Tarlang's Neck. The three mountains formed a spur on the southern side of the White Mountains.

According to legend, Dol Tarlang was in origin the head of the giant Tarlang.[1]


The name Dol Tarlang is glossed as "Tarlang's Head",[1] consisting of dol ("head") and Tarlang.[2]
