Location

The Morgul Vale (Imlad Morgul in Sindarin) was the valley of the Morgulduin in the Ephel Dúath.

Lore

Morgulduin was the polluted and icy-cold stream flowing through the Morgul Vale. It ran westward past Minas Morgul until it reached The Cross-roads in Ithilien, where its course turned southwest until it entered the Anduin just south of Osgiliath.
Just to the north of the stream was the road from Osgiliath up to Minas Morgul.
It flowed under the white, ghastly bridge that lead into Minas Morgul. The Bridge was destroyed by Mithrandir in the Quest: Fire Beneath the Shadow as you burned the noxious flowers.


Faramir warned Frodo and Sam not to drink from it, as the water was tainted and would harm whoever imbibed it.
Frodo, Sam, and Gollum entered the western end of the valley in order to reach the stairway to Cirith Ungol. As the three passed the white bridge Frodo was dazed by the noxious fumes and began running towards the city, but was stopped by Sam and Gollum. As they climbed the stairs they left the reek behind them on the floor of the valley.[1]
After the war was over, Aragorn as King Elessar ordered that Minas Morgul be utterly destroyed.[2]
