River Ringwil

The stream that fell from the High Faroth

A small stream that rose in the high wooded hills of West Beleriand known as the High Faroth. The stream flowed for only a short distance eastward before it reached the great gorge cut in those hills by the River Narog, and there its waters fell from the heights to join Narog's long southward journey.

The point where Ringwil fell down into the gorge was a secret and easily-defended place, and long ago the Petty-dwarves had hollowed out halls there, which they named Nulukkizdîn in their tongue. Later Finrod Felagund came there, and with the aid of the Dwarves of the Blue Mountains, carved out the great hidden citadel of Nargothrond.
