Valley of the Rainbows
From His Dark Materials Wiki
The Valley of the Rainbows is a valley in the Himalayas of Lyra's world. Mrs. Coulter brings Lyra here in a drugged sleep, hiding her in a cave from the Church and any other possible predators, until Will comes to rescue her.
|"There is a Himalayan Valley, very high up, near a glacier where the light is turned into rainbows by the ice'...Baruch traced a map... it showed a glacier with a curious serpentine shape, flowing down between three almost identical mountain peaks... 'The valley with the cave runs down from the left side of the glacier, and a river of meltwater runs through it... there is a shrine near the glacier, with red silk banners half-torn by the winds."|
