Velvet Hills
Western Essos and the location of the Velvet Hills

The Velvet Hills are a series of low hills in Andalos in western Essos. They lie to the east of Pentos. The headwaters of the Little Rhoyne are found among the hills.[1] Along the Valyrian road to Ghoyan Drohe, which sits among the Velvet Hills, there is a deep lake, a circle of standing stones some claim was raised by giants, and a female Valyrian sphinx, the male having been taken away by the Dothraki.[2]


Ser Willam the Wasp and his party searched for Balerion in the Velvet Hills, but they were slain by outlaws.[3]
