The Pinnath Gelin, or Green Hills, was a fertile, hilled country in western Gondor between the western White Mountains and Anfalas.[1]

It was sparsely populated.


The climate hovered near the moderate and the extreme with mild winters and hot, dry summers and the terrain consisted of scattered woodlands on a hilly area.[2][3]


At the time of the War of the Ring, Hirluin the Fair was either a lord of that region of Gondor or apparently a figure of authority there. As Pinnath Gelin was a loyal province of Gondor, Hirluin came with some 300 well-armed men marched to the aid of Minas Tirith during the Battle of the Pelennor Fields. Hirluin was killed by Orcs during the ensuing battle.[4]


Pinnath Gelin is Sindarin for 'green slopes',[5] or 'green hills'.
