Location: A great forest south of the Andram, between the rivers Sirion on the west and Gelion on the east.


But south of the Andram, between Sirion and Gelion, was a wild land of tangled forest in which no folk went, save here and there a few Dark Elves wandering; Taur-im-Duinath it was named, the Forest between the Rivers.

Upon Amon Ereb they maintained a watch...; and the Orcs came not into Ossiriand, nor to Taur-im-Duinath and the wilds of the south.
