Lanthir Lamath was a sparkling and beautiful waterfall in Ossiriand at the foot of the southern range of the Blue Mountains. It was part of a stream of the river Adurant.[1]

It was probably ruined after the destruction of Beleriand after the War of Wrath.


Lanthir Lamath was well known for being near the house of Dior Eluchíl, son of Beren and Lúthien, when he lived there before becoming the King of Doriath. As the water cascaded downward, the light would reflect and shimmer; this inspired the name of his daughter Elwing whose name means "Star-spray".[2]


Lanthir Lamath is a Sindarin word that meant 'Waterfall of Echoing Voices'.[3]
