Drajkmyr Marsh is a large region that takes a majority of Hjaalmarch, in the province of Skyrim. It is a salt marshland known for its abundance of eerie mist.[1]:436 It encompasses much of central Hjaalmarch, bordered by the lumber-town, Morthal to the south,[1]:439 the Karth River and Fort Snowhawk across the west, both the Great Arch and the Mouths of the Karth in the north, and finally, the snowy woods that lead towards the Pale to the east.

It is largely uninhabited, only small encampments and isolated shelters are found across the region. Some ruins in the area have sunken into the terrain while others remain untouched on its frontier. The Apprentice Stone can be found on a small islet directly north of Snowhawk. There is a myriad of flora that lives in these swamps, one of the most well-known is the Deathbell, which is the source of several local folktales, such as that it grows in places where an unfortunate death may occur, or that it lures people and animals to certain death.[2] Other types of plants include the Swamp Fungal Pod and even the Nirnroot. There are several landmarks across the Drajkmyr Marsh, such as Folgunthur, Kjenstag, and Ustengrav. The River Hjaal empties into the region and Morthal from the southwest.
