movie facts

Mordor is the base of the Dark Lord Sauron. The barren wasteland filled with poisonous fumes, where evil does not sleep, is a daunting sight. However, there are claims for the real-location of Sauron’s dark domain. New Zealand was the primary location where The Lord of the Rings trilogy was shot by Peter Jackson. There, Mordor was situated in Tongariro National Park, surrounded by three volcanoes.
