It is now inhabited by the brutish, corrupted Falmer, and the indigenous Vale creatures: the Vale Sabre Cat, the Vale Deer, and the Frost Giant. You will visit it during the course of the Dawnguard plug-in's main questline, either as a Vampire Lord or as a member of the Dawnguard. The temple built by the Snow Elves in honor of Auri-El is found here. In front of the Inner Sanctum, there is a frozen lake with a word wall in the middle for the shout Drain Vitality, which is guarded by the twin dragons Voslaarum and Naaslaarum.
 Paragon Portal
Behind the hill, on the opposite side of the valley from the Wayshrine of Resolution, is the Paragon Portal. It uses the five different paragons to open a portal to their respective area. The paragons can be obtained from Frost Giants.
The Amethyst Paragon opens a portal to Darkfall Grotto.
The Diamond Paragon opens a portal to Glacial Crevice.
The Emerald Paragon opens a portal to Forgotten Vale Overlook.
The Ruby Paragon opens a portal to Forgotten Vale Forest.
The Sapphire Paragon opens a portal to Inner Sanctum.
