The Plain of Charandaprash is a stony plain at the mouth of the only practical pass through the Dandha Presh mountains, which sprawl across the southern continent. The high pass itself, also referred to as "Charandaprash", is the only passable point through the range east of the Shindai Kus desert.

She Is the Darkness[]

This was the site of the Battle of Charandaprash, a major milestone in the Shadowmaster wars detailed in She Is the Darkness. This was one of the Black Company's greatest triumphs, and perhaps the most humiliating defeat of their nemesis, the Great General Mogaba.

Water Sleeps[]

More than 15 years later, in Water Sleeps, Sleepy and her band of Company members and allies reached the site as they headed south. Even after so many years, the Plain of Charandaprash was still littered with the wreckage from the giant battle. The small, disinterested Protectorate garrison did not query the disguised travelers, and the Company passed through without difficultly.

Soldiers Live[]

The Company – now reconstituted with 8,000 well-trained recruits from Hsien – re-entered the homeworld in Soldiers Live and marched back northward, toward Taglios. Somewhere north of the Plain of Charandaprash, Iqbal and Runmust Singh led the group which captured the Daughter of Night and Narayan Singh.
