Mount Farnor is an area in the Dragonland Chronicles.
Originally known as Kayrgorn's tooth, Mount Farnor forms the tallest peak of the ridges known as the Fangs of Farloth.

It i said that his armour and sword still gleams eerily in certain winter nights when the stars grow faint and the moon is obscured by darkened clouds.
In later days, there have been whispered rumours of a nameless fear that stalks the peak, as if guarding the Century Horn for his own wicked purposes. The rumours hold that to stand before the sacred horn you must pass the Trials of Mount Farnor...
