The Plateau of Gorgoroth (Sindarin for Great Horror) lies immediately behind the Morannon, the Black gate, in the Land of Mordor, where the shadows lie.

The Plateau of Gorgoroth was a high desolate plain in northwestern Mordor enclosed by the Ephel Dúath on the west and the Ered Lithui on the north. The only known passages into the plateau through these mountain walls were Carach Angren (the Isenmouthe) (from Udûn and the Morannon), Cirith Ungol, and the Imlad Morgul (Morgul Vale).[1]

To the southeast, between two arms of the mountain ranges, was a gap that opened upon the land of Nurn.[2]

In this dreary wasteland fumes issued from fissures in the ground and smoke curled and settled in hollows. Centered in the desolation some forty miles east of the Ephel Duath rose the Orodruin (Mount Doom). It and Barad-dûr, situated on a spur of the Ered Lithui and rising taller than the volcano, dominated the landscape of the plateau.[3]
