Genshin Impact how to get to Sumeru

The region of scholars and wisdom awaits.

The big Genshin Impact 3.0 update includes new characters, the Dendro element, Archon Quests, and of course, the new Sumeru region.

You might have come across some scholars from Sumeru on your travels in Genshin Impact before, but now we get to visit the region for ourselves when we get to Sumeru, and explore locations like Sumeru City, Port Ormos, Sumeru Akademiya, and Avidya Forest which is patrolled by new characters Tighnari and Collei.

To explore the new nation and complete the new Archon Quests, however, you first need to know how to get to Sumeru, so we’ve detailed the exact steps you need to take in Genshin Impact below.

Genshin Impact how to get to Sumeru

Unlike the Inazuma region, which is only accessible by completing certain Archon Quests, you can explore Sumeru even if you're fairly new to Genshin Impact!

This means to get to Sumeru, all you have to do is travel to the newly unlocked region west of Mondstadt and Liyue. There used to be a misty wall blocking progress, but it's now been lifted after the 3.0 update.

Thanks to reddit user Maziiiiiiiiik for confirming that you can get to Sumeru after completing Amber's, Kaeya'a and Lisa's domains in Mondstadt.

However, if you are caught up with the story, we recommend getting to Sumeru by following the 'Chapter 3 - Act 1: Through Mists of Smoke and Forests Dark' quest marker and travelling to the area with the new Teleport Waypoint above The Chasm, located in the west of Liyue. You can then go through the nearby cave to get to Sumeru.

Version 4.1 is here! With it comes the debut of Neuvillette and Wriothesley. Our Fontaine guide can also help with Fontaine's Reputation and the Fountain of Lucine, and you can also redeem new codes for Primogems if you want Neuvillette or Wriothesley - and check them out on our tier list. You'll also need luck from the Pity and 50/50 systems to Wish with Fate for them and future Banners, and you always need the right Adventure Rank for events. Elsewhere, we have tips and tricks for beginners, Dendroculus locations, fishing locations, and TCG card locations.

You'll be gradually introduced to new puzzles, exploration, and combat mechanics found in Sumeru by following your Archon Quests, which is why we recommend doing so.

Go to the Teleport Waypoint in the west of The Chasm to get to Sumeru as part of the Chapter 3 Archon Quest.

Many events that take place in Sumeru will require you to be a certain Adventure Rank, and some of the enemies can be tough. So we wouldn't recommend getting to Sumeru before reaching at least Adventure Rank 20.

Now that you’re in Sumeru, you can unlock Sumeru Reputation, get Collei for free, complete the new Sumeru Archon Quests, and collect Denroculus!
