Rivendell, also known as Imladris, was an Elven outpost in Middle-earth. It is also referred to as "The Last Homely House East of the Sea", a reference to Valinor, which is west of the Great Sea in Aman. Located at the edge of a narrow gorge of the river Bruinen (one of the main approaches to Rivendell comes from the nearby Ford of Bruinen), but well hidden in the moorlands and foothills of the Hithaeglir or the Misty Mountains.
Out of all the places in Tolkien's world, the place I always wanted to visit most was Rivendell. It's hidden mysticism and rich history were intriguing; I think 100 years in this elven home wouldn't be enough time to learn all of it's secrets.
@peteryang292 Precisely! Their world is intricate, mysterious and not-quite-what-it-seems. Of course we want to try to infiltrate and share in the secrets.
@greggr well said! The Elves from what I understand are also very secretive and reclusive, weary of of those from outside of their realms, which only compounds what you said about all their secrets
All of the elven cities were absolutely incredible! If we lived in the LOTR universe I would want to be an elf, haha
