The Forest of Qohor is a large area of woodland and forest on the eastern continent of Essos. Located between the Free city of Norvos and the Dothraki Sea, stretching north all the way to the Shivering Sea.[1]


The forest is vast and takes roughly two weeks to cross by horse.[2] The Free city of Qohor located on the forest's western edge and it contains the headlands of the Qhoyne river. It is the land of the Black Goat, an old god worshipped only in Free city of Qohor. It's trees are large, their trunks as wide as city gates and the leaves give off a golden hue when submitted to sunlight and make a golden canopy above travelers.[2]

The forest provides much of the lumber used by eastern Free Cities for their keels and masts, as well as good fodder to trade to the Dothraki when they come off their mighty sea of grass.[3] Animals found within the wood include great elk, spotted tigers and lemurs with silver fur and huge purple eyes.[2]
