Now then, if we look into the antiquity in real life, we notice that mountain ranges usually always worked as a barricade. Just think of how much the Alps protected the Romans from invasions from the north.
Now sure, in LBA 1, we know of the Okojo Pass from south to north in the Hamalayi Mountains but most likely, not many poeple crossed it at all, let alone on a regular basis. And the alternative, the Dino-fly, is only accessible to the Heir, so inaccessible to most people.
