Other Names The Nindalf. In HoMe 7, The Treason of Isengard, an early name was Palath Nenui.
Location: Just below the Rauros Falls on the east side of the Anduin. This is just opposite where the Entwash joins the Anduin.
Description: There the River flows in stony vale amid high moors, until at last after many leagues it comes to the tall island of the Tindrock, that we call Tol Brandir. There it casts its arms about the steep shores of the isle, and falls then with a great noise and smoke over the cataracts of Rauros down into the Nindalf, the Wetwang as it is called in your tongue. That is a wide region of sluggish fen where the stream becomes tortuous and much divided. There the Entwash flows in by many mouths from the Forest of Fangorn in the west.
