The round valley of Tumladen, within the Encircling Mountains, had originally been a lake, and in its centre stood a hill that had once been an island: Amon Gwareth. It was here that Turgon decided to found his Hidden City, as a memorial to ancient Tirion that lay beyond the Great Sea.

The first building of the city took fifty-two years to complete. After this time, the people of Turgon, a great number of Noldor and Sindar, traveled from Nevrast, where they had dwelt, and secretly entered the valley of Tumladen. Turgon gave his city the name Ondolindë (Quenya for "The Rock of the Music of Water", because of the fountains of Amon Gwareth), but in Sindarin this was rendered Gondolin, the Hidden Rock.

After their arrival in the new city, the Gondolindrim continued to labour in its building, until it was said to rival even Tirion itself. Its walls stood high and white above the plain, and its most prominent feature was the great Tower of the King, where, among the fountains, Turgon himself made Glingal and Belthil, trees of gold and silver made in memory of the Two Trees of Valinor.

To edit the site I use only voxelniper and worldedit. I do not use worldpainter

These steps make me longing. and the trees....

Looks somehow cinematic fantastic.

I recommend Geocontrol 2 for the Mountains. Export e hightmap and import it in Worldpainter.

You can do richer houses with a bottom floor made of stone and then the top floor with an offset of 1 block and the some blocks as your concepts. Awesome btw!

Hey, there some nice work done here! But some screenshots either need exposure adjustment or should be remove because they're too obscure
looks nice :)
The only buildng I can see is the bridge, everything else is hidden in sun reflection or other graphic effects...

I think I like it but I also like to see the buildings and not shader effects. ;-)

because there is a ready only bridge river and a small piece of the mountains, and no more buildings as far dealing with terrain

I think today I can add pictures of four gates and river Sirion, but the gates are not yet included in the gorge.
