The Red Waste is a region on the continent of Essos. It is a forbidding landscape of stunted trees, devil grass and ancient ruins, which stretches southwards for hundreds of miles. It is located south of the Dothraki Sea and Lhazar. It is east of Slaver's Bay, north of the fabled city of Qarth, and west of the Bone Mountains. It is a land of low hills, barren windswept plains, dry rivers and red parched soil, where the necessities of living are hard to come by.
