The salt lakes are large lakes filled with salt water. There are two of them. The one on the right is shaped like a round ridge, the left one in similar shape.
The salt lakes are located in the southern Beyond, and are very close to the tip of the Beyond's borders. North to the lakes are an area of mountaintops near the river that splits the country. They are west to MacNab territory, south-west to Gwynneth's first forge and MacDuff territory, and north-east to Shadow Forest.
