Erebor (Syn. "Lonely Mountain") is a legend in JRR Tolkien's mountain in the northeast of Middle-earth and the kingdom of dwarves from the Durin people located in it. Geography and description The mountain was located south of the Gray Mountains (Ered Metrin), west of the Iron Hills and northeast (about 40 miles) of the Dark Forest. From the depths of the mountain flowed the river Kelduin (Bystritsa) and, running south, merged with the Forest River in the Long Lake, which housed the city of Esgaroth, then flowed from the lake and flowed to the southeast, where it flows into the inner Runic Sea (Lake Rune). . Erebor was surrounded on all sides by a forestless steppe, resulting in the toponym - Lonely Mountain. On the southern side of the mountain was the huge Main Gate, near which a river flowed from the mountain to form a waterfall. On the river at the foot was a human city - the state of Doll - ruled by kings. On the south-eastern part of the mountain there was a Krukova rock and a guard post. In the depths of the mountain from the Main Gate along the river deep led a wide winding road. Nearby was the Great Hall of Tror, where celebrations and banquets were held. In the mountain there were numerous caves, mines, halls, corridors and stairs. The largest hall was the Great Hall of Train I, located in the Lower Halls at the foot of the mountain. A side passage led from the Great Hall to a secret door that was well disguised and visible only on Durin's Day, when the setting sun opened the castle.
