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.

Now that Genshin Impact 3.1 is here, and you can take part in Fecund Blessings and Charity and Creativity during Of Ballads and Brews for a free Missive Spear weapon, explore the desert for new Dendroculus locations, and conquer the Garden of Endless Pillars Domain. If you're just starting your Sumeru journey, check out our pages on Sumeru Reputation, Tree of Dreams, Sumeru craftable weapons, the Universal Fungus Domain, and Nilotpala Lotus locations. For time-limited events, you'll have to be the right Adventure Rank, and as for spending those Primogems you can now Wish with Fate for Cyno. As always, you can visit our tier list, learn how Pity and 50/50 works, and see what the next and current Banners are. If you want to relax, however, why not try fishing at one of the many fishing spot locations? Remember to also check back regularly for all the latest Genshin Impact codes.

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!
