“Land of Mist”. The most north-westerly realm of all the kingdoms of the Noldor, founded by Fingolfin.

It was a great, enclosed plain, fenced on the south, east and west by the ranges of Ered Wethrin and Ered Lómin. It was 50 leagues wide at its widest point. The plain was destroyed by Morgoth in the Nirnaeth Arnoediad. The elves of Hithlum were the first to weave the enchanted Elven Cloaks.
