I was on holiday here recently and saw the most beautiful waterfalls I have ever seen.

The waterfalls are named after a mythical beast who carried a Hindu god, also the name of a character in Tolkien's Lord of the Rings!

That narrows it down a lot! There aren't many female characters in Lord of the Rings. :P

Hmmm... off the top of my head Arwen, Galadriel and Eowyn. But I can't really find a match for any of them with Hindu gods and/or waterfalls.

OK, perhaps my memory of Tolkien spellings were a little off. So we'll stick with the Hindu god, Indra. The waterfalls have seven levels and fish that nibble your toes (somewhat aggressively, I thought!). The falls are in a national park of the same name.

Well, that made it a lot easier.

 

Indra rides on a white elephant called Airavata, but it's also known under the name Erawan, which is the name of the falls and the park, which is located in Thailand. And it does indeed sound like something Elvish Tolkien could have come up with.

 

And yeah, I got all of that from Wikipedia... :unsure:

Ha! I was starting to branch out and look for Rosie (as in Rosie Cotton), Goldberry (only in the books, not the movies), etc.
