Emyn Muil in The Two Towers

The hills of Emyn Muil, upon either side of Nen Hithoel, was a vast, seemingly impenetrable maze of rocky crags situated in the region of Rhovanion in Middle-earth.

The Emyn Muil lies between the eastern part of Rohan and the relatively empty lands that contained the Dead Marshes and the Nindalf. It was approximately seventy-five miles from east to west and some one-hundred miles from north to south.[1]

In TA 3002Éomund father of Eomer and Eowyn was slain while he was chasing a band of orcs.

History Edit

The Emyn Muil had once marked the northern borders of the Kingdom of Gondor at its height.

Significance in the Lord of the Rings Edit

At the beginning of The Two Towers, Frodo and Sam, attempting to reach the Black Gate of Mordor, are lost in the eastern Emyn Muil for days until Gollum finds them. After a great deal of persuasion, he agrees to show them the way, leading them south into the Dead Marshes.
