Map of Cabed-en-Aras

The Deer's Leap; a narrow point in the Ravines of Teiglin. It was here that Túrin Turambar slew the dragon Glaurung.


Notes

1

While most of Beleriand was lost under the Great Sea at the First Age's end, a very few regions survived as islands, and one of these held the Stone of the Hapless near Cabed-en-Aras. It is possible, therefore, that some part of the ravine may have survived as part of Tol Morwen (as the later island was known).
