The Riverlands and the location of High Heart

High Heart is a very tall hill sacred to the children of the forest in the Riverlands. Around its crown stands a ring of thirty-one weirwood stumps. The hill is considered a safe place due to its relative height compared to the very flat surrounding land, making it nearly impossible to be approached unseen.

The nearby smallfolk avoid the area as it is said to be haunted by the children of the forest who had been slaughtered by the Andal king Erreg.[1]
