Template:SkyrimCaves This Falmer lair is a large labyrinthine cave system located in the mountains of The Reach near the Karth River.


It is divided into two sections; Gloomreach Cavern and Gloomreach Hive. Gloomreach is unlike most other cave system, as the explorer discovers shortly after entering. The cave is lit by an eerie greenish blue lighting and glowing blue tendrils protrude from the walls and reach down from the ceiling. The roof of the caverns are covered with a glowing bluish substance.

Gloomreach is home to a band of the sightless Falmer and their domesticated insectoid Chaurus. With Dawnguard, more enemies appear, including Chaurus Hunters and Falmer Warmongers.

Gloomreach Cavern

Gloomreach Cavern appears to be an abandoned Corundum mine, as evidenced by the mining equipment and the presence of a Smelter. There are Corundum Ore Veins which can be mined here as well. A pickaxe can be found nearby if one is needed. Withershins, a Restoration skill book, can be found on a barrel where the first Falmer is encountered.

Gloomreach Hive

Gloomreach Hive is reached after passing through the upper section. Following the tunnel leads to a larger cavern with a ramp leading down ending in a fresh water pool with a skeleton and some salmon. A chest containing leveled ingots is on the bottom of the pool. The hive has more Falmer and Chaurus, as well as a couple of chests.

Notable Loot


The cave system is of particular interest to the Alchemist intent on gathering rare materials. There is a large number of Chaurus Eggs that can be harvested from the egg pods found throughout the cave. Falmer Ears can also be looted from slain Falmer. There is also a large number and variety of mushrooms in this cave system.
