Dunharrow was a refuge of the Rohirrim hidden in the White Mountains which was fortified against any attack from the enemies of Rohan.

Description Edit

Dunharrow was a clifftop overlooking Harrowdale, the valley of the river Snowbourn. The refuge can be reached by way of a winding path known as the Stair of the Hold. This path was lined with statues known as the Púkel-men, statues originally carved by the Men of the White Mountains, in the likeness of the Drúedain. The "Firienfeld", a large grassy area for the encampment of soldiers and refuge-seekers, preceded the stair. Large carved stones marked the entrance to the Dimholt, a natural amphitheater, with a road leading to the Paths of the Dead.[1]

History Edit

Dunharrow had been used as a refuge by the Middle Men of the White Mountains during the Second Age several centuries before Rohan, and by the Rohirrim during the War of the Ring, while Dunhere was Lord of Harrowdale.[2]
