Rivendell, called Imladris in the Sindarin tongue, is a small valley in the foothills of the Misty Mountains. The valley is well hidden, and evil seldom finds its way there. The valley is full of life, both flora and fauna.
The main feature of Rivendell is the Last Homely House. This is the house of Elrond and his kin. Notables include Arwen, Erestor, and Bilbo Baggins. Many others, mainly elves, inhabit this haven.
