Mordor (Sindarin: Black Land, Quenya: Land of Shadow) is located in South East Middle Earth to the east of the River Anduin.



Thoroughly unpleasant. The region of Mordor has rarely been dealt kind hand. Successive colonial powers have done little to clean the place up and there is still no functioning train service. The recent large scale eruption of Mount Doom, and the associated collateral damage just might (only might) encourage a more enlightened approach to development in the region.


Mordor is surrounded on three sides by large mountain ranges: Ered Lithui (Ash Mountains) in the the north, Ephel Duath (Mountains of Shadow) to the west bordering the region of Gondor, and extending round to the south. Generally they are not very nice.


Orcish is the native tounge. Strangely similar to English.

Get in

One does not simply walk in to Mordor. You gotta rock in to Mordor. Or take the shortbus.

After the recent twinning with the city of Brussels, all citizens of countries who are signatories to the Schengen treaty, are granted are unlimited stay visa on arrival. Australians however, remain unwelcome.

Get around


Mordor is quite unique amongst A-list destinations in that it tends to see you rather better than you see it.

The peaks of Mordor are not be taken lightly

  • Barad-dûr (Lugbúrz in Black Speech), (Visible from all of Mordor), + 0 00 000 000 (), [1]. The royal palace is the main attraction in Mordor and very popular among travelers. free admission.
  • Mount Doom (Orodruin in Sindarin). Another popular sight, best known from the video game series DOOM. You can take a refreshing trek to the top of the mountain. See also the section "Do".


  • Trekking through any of the Mordor ranges should not be taken lightly. An authorised, experienced guide is recommended. One agency in particular seems to have some success:, but they do demand payment in gold rings and the lead guide can be a touch moody.





Do not sleep in Mordor.

Stay safe

Stay healthy

It is highly recommended to buy a travel insurance before the trip, just in case.


Get out

  • In the talons of an eagle, back to the rather dull German settlement at Minas Tirith
  • Hardier, adventurous types might try a cruise in the Bay of Belfalas.
  • Do rather get out sooner than later.
