Orfalch Echor - Alan Lee

Orfalch Echor as depicted by Alan Lee

The Orfalch Echor was a large ravine that ran through the Echoriath, the Encircling Mountains, in Beleriand.

Its overall length from beginning to end was about ten miles.[1]


Before the Fall of Gondolin, it was guarded by seven sturdy gates and the soldiers of Gondolin. Tuor and Voronwë passed through here on their way to the city.[2]
