Places in Middle-earth


Type: Rivers & Lakes

Region: Beleriand & North

Location: A stream arising in the northeastern slopes of Taur-en-Faroth that flows into the river Narog at Nargothrond.


Narog came through these hills in a deep gorge, and flowed over rapids that had no fall, and on its western bank the land rose into the great wooded highlands of Taur-en-Faroth. On the west side of this gorge, where the short and foaming stream Ringwil tumbled headlong into Narog from the High Faroth, Finrod established Nargothrond.
