Dorne and the location of the Prince's Pass

The Prince's Pass is one of the principal overland routes from the Stormlands to Dorne. It is located in the Red Mountains of Dorne.



Its Dornish side is guarded from the castle Skyreach, the seat of House Fowler, which holds the title Warden of the Prince's Pass.[1] The Prince's Pass descends from the mountains into the deep sands of Dorne.[2] Structures along the route include Skyreach, Kingsgrave, and the Tower of Joy. North of the Prince's Pass is Nightsong in the Dornish Marches. Unlike the Boneway, the Prince's Pass does not appear to have a proper road.[3]


The Three Leaves, three members of House Oakheart including Alester and Ser Olyvar, died in the Prince's Pass at the side of the Young Dragon, Daeron I Targaryen.[4]
