The Golden Way was a road starting in Telflamm, a city in the nation of Thesk along the coast of the Sea of Fallen Stars. It extended eastward, through Phsant, Tammar, and other cities until it reached the shore between Lake Ashane and Lake Mulsantir. Travelers crossed via ferries to Mulsantir in Rashemen. The Golden Way continued through Rashemen and the Endless Wastes (also called Taan) all the way to the empire of Shou Lung in the distant lands of Kara-Tur. It was the primary trade route between the lands of Faerûn and Kara-Tur and the source of Thesk's wealth.[1]

The Golden Way was pioneered by Windyn Balindre in 917 DR,[2] a merchant from Impiltur who also founded Telflamm in the process.[3] Trade along the Golden Way was interrupted for a few years by the Tuigan Horde until they were defeated at Phsant in 1360 DR by King Azoun IV of Cormyr leading an alliance of nations throughout Faerûn.[4]
