Enchanted river1

Thorin and Company by the enchanted stream in the film The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

The Enchanted stream was a black stream in Mirkwood that flowed north from its source in the Mountains of Mirkwood towards the Forest River, which it joined about ten miles before (west of) the Elven-king's halls. It had fast and strong currents, but was not too wide at least in the area near the Forest Path where Thorin and Company crossed it.

Anyone who drank or bathed in the stream's water would fall into a deep sleep, and suffer amnesia when finally waking.[1]

HistoryEdit

Bilbo Baggins and the Dwarves of Thorin and Company had to cross the stream while traveling through Mirkwood on their quest to the Lonely Mountain. One of the Dwarves, Bombur, clumsily fell backwards into the stream while trying to get out of a boat they used in the crossing. He fell asleep for many days and dreamt of Elvish feasts. When he finally awoke, he could not remember anything since the party at Bilbo's house before they left.[2]
