High Hrothgar is a settlement high atop the highest peak in Skyrim, the Throat of the World. Sitting atop seven thousand stone steps, here dwell the ancient Greybeards who endeavor to become more attuned to the voice of the sky. The Nords believe that they were created by Kyne when the sky breathed onto the peak of the mountain, and many journey up the 7,000 steps on pilgrimages.
It is also home to Paarthurnax, a reformed dragon who is leader of the Greybeards. Few are granted access to its halls as they must be deemed worthy by the Greybeards first (notable examples including Tiber Septim, Ulfric Stormcloak, Balgruuf the Greater, and the Dragonborn). Most who are accepted are then trained in the Way of the Voice.
