Salakrün Mountains

‘Snow-Crowned.’ (Kh) large mountain region that runs east from the southern base of the Saugreth-Muir mountain range. These mountains were conquered by the dwarves early in the Fourth Age and the great Dwarf-realm of Kronar was built here. The Dwarf-realm was later destroyed by Alokkair and the dwarves were forced out. The mountains are now infested with innumerable orcs and goblins.

The range serves as the northern border of Gwynne and as a buffer between that kingdom and Morgoth. Also within the mountains are the famous Waymeet Pass, the Ansilay Road, and the Freehold of Trevalia.
