- This page is about the Silverlode as it appears in Lothlórien. For the river in T.A. 2799 during the Sixth War of Dwarves and Orcs under its Dwarvish name, see Kibil-nâla.
The Celebrant is a river flowing through Lothlórien
The river Celebrant has its source in the Misty Mountains. From there it streams to the east, through the Mirrormere and through Lórien. Eventually it ends in the great river Anduin. The banks of the river are steep: travellers who want to cross it best use the bridge just south of Caras Galadhon.
- Celebrant is Sindarin for 'Silvercourse'. It was called Silverlode in Westron and Kibil-nâla in Khuzdul, the language of dwarves.
The Celebrant starts its course the south end of the Mirrormere.
The river then rumbles through Nanduhirion in several waterfalls.
As the Celebrant continues east, the fir trees of the Misty Mountains are replaced by young golden-leaves mallorns.
Three spans of elegant bridges cross the river throughout its course in the Golden Wood.
A blanket of golden leaves float upon the water throughout the Celebrant's course.
As the river approaches its end, the elves have built beautiful swan rafts anchored to wooden piers.
At the end, the Celebrant flows into the great Anduin and joins its flow towards the ocean far to the south.
