Walk to Rivendell
Malbeth the Seer
It was into the Anduin, near the Gladden Fields, that the One Ring became Isildurīs Bane. For it was there that it slipped from his finger as he swam to escape a force of orcs that had waylaid him in his journey north. The River held the prize for centuries until Deagol found it in the muddy bottom of a deep pool along the river.
Pipe-weed, originally brought from Nûmenor, was first grown in Middle-Earth in the vales of the lower Anduin.
Called the Great River, Anduin the Great, and the River of Gondor.
