The Refuge of Edhelion is an area within Ered Luin in the northern region. [14.4S, 101.1W]

Thousands of years before present events take place the Elves of Lindon founded a refuge upon the slopes of Ered Luin, where wood for the White Ships was gathered and elven wine was made. Edhelion, it was called, and it was a place of contemplation and peace until roughly T.A. 2400.

Newly created elf characters begin their adventure in a quest instance that is set in Edhelion, just about when the city is attacked by Skorgrím Dourhand. He is an evil dwarf-lord descended from the kings who once ruled the long-ruined kingdoms of the Blue Mountains. He charges his people, allied with goblins and trolls, against this elven refuge. Skorgrím wickedly believes that some relics will give him immortal life. Talagan Silvertongue, the Master of Edhelion, eventually sacrifices himself as well as the library holding the artefacts to defeat Skorgrím, but Edhelion is abandoned in respect of its many fallen defenders.

About 600 years after the Dourhand assault on Edhelion and abandonment, Elrond has a dream which, together with his knowledge of the state in Thorin's Hall, makes him send his two sons Elladan and Elrohir on an expedition to Edhelion to investigate, making camp at the ruins of Edhelion Watch much to displeasure of the Dourhands whom have made their home within the Blue Mountains.

In the current time, after Thorin's Gate has been reclaimed by the Longbeards, the Refuge of Edhelion is a solemn, empty place; those who travel here contemplate over the evils of the past, or they meditate over recent timings that stir up painful memories and brooding presentiments.
