The river Lefnui was counted as first of the Seven Rivers of Gondor.

Lefnui began in the south-western valleys of the Starkhorn peak of the White Mountains, and flowed south-west parallel to the mountain range. Becoming a great and wide river, it entered the Bay of Belfalas at the end of the Anfalas region of Gondor, in a bay of its own. West of the river's mouth lay the long cape of Andrast.

According to Karen Wynn Fonstad's The Atlas of Middle-earth, the river is over two-hundred miles in length.[1]
