The Khumaar Hills are a low series of mountains midway up the island of Forosth. Almost neatly, they divide that island in half. North of the hills, the land is drier and more sparsely populated and is known as Stanov. South, an equatorial climate is in evidence. The Hills themselves are barren and no known path runs through them, although a road follows the west coast from Nelucium to Prosth., which skirts the Hills.
