Nan-Tathren also known as Land of Willows was a region in Beleriand situated around both the Narog and Sirion.

The land was of modest beauty and many willow trees grew here, but the area was sparsely populated.[1]


After the defeat of the Union of Maedhros at the Nirnaeth Arnoediad, this had become one of the many places in Beleriand that Orcs and wolves roamed.[2] In FA 511 shortly after the Fall of Gondolin, the survivors of the city led by Tuor and Idril camped here and made their respects to the fallen.[3]

When Galadriel and Celeborn say farewell to Treebeard, after the downfall of Barad-dûr,[4] after Celeborn says he thinks they shall not meet the Ent again, Galadriel states that "Not in Middle-earth, nor until the lands that lie under the wave (Beleriand) are lifted up again. Then in the willow-meads of Tasarinan we may meet in the Spring," 


Also known as The Land of Willows or Valley of the Willows, it is also called in Nan-tasarion (Willow-meads) in Quenya.[5][6]
