Calenhir was a small river located in Gondor. It was a tributary of the larger river Morthond, originating from Pinnath Gelin and flowing westward.

The river only appears in earlier versions of the map J.R.R. Tolkien drew for The Lord of the Rings, and is mentioned only in The History of Middle-earth.[1] As such, its canonicity remains unclear.


Calenhir appears to mean "Green river" in Sindarin.[2]
