The Tongue

The southeastern limit of Lórien

The narrow point of land at the southeastern tip of Lórien, formed where the Celebrant flowed into the Great River Anduin. The angle between the two rivers was treeless, and covered by a green lawn flowered with bright golden elanor. On the southern bank of the Tongue was a hythe - a landing-place - from which river-boats could set out into the Celebrant to navigate either river. It was from this hythe that the Fellowship of the Ring set out after their time in Lórien to begin their travels on the Great River.
