Araman was situated in Aman, and was a cold semi-desert region to the north of Valinor. It was on the eastern side of the Mountains of Defence, and the region extended into the Far North, widening as it went northwards. The Noldor survived there, but only just, after the First Age. The Teleri built a tower for Elwing in far northern Araman.
