Darkfall Passage is a location in The Elder Scrolls V: Dawnguard that can be reached via Darkfall Cave.


This cave is initially accessed during the quest "Touching the Sky" by help of the Snow Elf Knight-Paladin Gelebor. Gelebor will open one of the shrines for the Dragonborn, who, after travelling through it, ends up in Darkfall Passage.

After "Touching the Sky" has been completed, Darkfall Passage can be accessed through any of the opened shrines, through the shrine in Darkfall Cave and through Darkfall Grotto.


Darkfall Passage is mainly inhabited by Falmer. Several Falmer villages can be found inside the cave. The second portion of the passage is inhabited by vale deer and vale sabre cats.
