The fragrant lake above Eldalondë

The long thin lake that formed along the lower course of the River Nunduinë, above the haven of Eldalondë on Númenor's western coast. Along its banks grew all manner of sweet-smelling plants, from which it got its name - Nísinen comes from the Elvish for 'fragrant water'.
