Tien Myuen is a glacier in the world of Hsien mentioned in the first chapter of Soldiers Live. A young Black Company recruit in training, Tam Duc, accidentally fell to his death in a crevasse when he and his lance brothers rode their blankets down this glacier's long slick slope. Croaker the Annalist mentioned this occurred a few weeks before the opening of Soldiers Live. It was one of a small handful of Company deaths that occurred during the peaceful 4 years that transpired between Water Sleeps and Soldiers Live.

Tien Myuen is presumably not far from the Company's headquarters city, the Abode of Ravens, which was built in the valley north of Hsien's Shadowgate. It may also be connected to the same mountain range where the huge, ancient monastery Khang Phi is found.
