The Ginglith was a tributary of the river Narog in the West Beleriand, forming the western boundary of the plain of Tumhalad.[1]


The Ginglith was the site where the last battle of the elven realm of Nargothrond was fought, and where they were defeated. The river was sourced from somewhere in the forest of Núath close to the Ered Wethrin.[1]
