Land of Willows

The willow-woods of Nan-tathren

Some miles to the north of the Mouths of Sirion, that river's waters were swelled by its joining with the Narog. Where the two rivers met, a flowered land lay, filled with willow trees that ran along the river-banks. This was Nan-tathren, the Land of Willows that was famed as one of Middle-earth's most beautiful places.
