From A Wiki of Ice and Fire
The Dothraki Sea is vast inland region on the continent of Essos, located east of the Free Cities. Its landscape of steppes and plains is home to the nomadic Dothraki equestrian people, who constantly battle each other and raid surrounding lands.
Save for Vaes Dothrak there are no roads, hills, or cities, leaving an ocean of unbroken rippling grass, for which the Dothraki Sea is named. Over a hundred types of grass grows on the plains, that often grow thick and taller than a man's head and from afar look like a sea, as it rolls like waves in the breeze. Some rivers run through the lands, though they are often shallow and shift with the seasons; overall sand is more prevalent than water.
Its only city, an ancient ruin called Vaes Dothrak, lies at the heart of the Sea and is home and heart of the Dothraki people and culture. Other than that it is largely empty with packs of wild dogs, herds of free-ranging horses and rare hrakkar.
Located in the inland of Essos, east of the Free Cities, the Dothraki Sea starts at the Forest of Qohor and extends eastward as far as the desert wasteland known as the Red Waste. To the south the Dothraki Sea is bounded by Slaver's Bay and the Skahazadhan River, which flows into it. South of the river live the Lhazareen people. The Dothraki Sea is so immense it can support more than two dozen khalasars, each riding its own circuit and taking what is needed from the land as they go.
A single massive mountain is located in the region, the Mother of Mountains, which rises at the heart of the Dothraki Sea, at the city of Vaes Dothrak.
