Liyue (Chinese: 璃月, Líyuè) is one of the seven nations in Teyvat. It's also the city-state that worships Rex Lapis, the Geo Archon.

Act I: Farewell, Archaic Lord takes place in this region.

Description

A bountiful harbor that lies in the east of Teyvat. Mountains stand tall and proud alongside the stone forest, that, together with the open plains and lively rivers, make up Liyue's bountiful landscape, which shows its unique beauty through each of the four seasons. Just how many gifts from the Geo God lie in wait amongst the rocks of Liyue's mountains?

Travel Highlights

When I received the invitation from the Merchant and Adventurers' Guilds of Liyue to write a piece on Liyue Harbor, I hesitated for a long time before finally embracing the challenge. Sure, I have been running a caravan around Teyvat with my father for as long as I can remember. Those born and raised in Liyue aside, there is no-one in Teyvat who knows every route in and out of Liyue as well as I. With that said, I've met my share of exceptional poets and writers on the road, and I would never consider myself a writer of their caliber. Therefore, I'm afraid I must apologize in advance for my lack of literary ability to write a real page-turner. So, please bear with me. Even when I was young, Liyue Harbor, the greatest trading port in all of Teyvat, already meant wealth and prosperity to everyone in our caravan. I remember, back then, every time when the children heard the caravan was going to Liyue, they'd beg for a place in the caravan. Though it was a long time ago, the memory of the bustling streets, noisy crowds, and the wonders lying on the shop shelves are all still so vivid to me. I can still remember the mysterious and enticing scents calling out to me from the snack stalls. When I came of age, I was entrusted with the family business. I then led the caravan between all the major cities across Teyvat. As the world opened up to me, Liyue also became a lot more to me than just the port I used to run around barefoot in as a kid.

Areas

Name Description Picture
Liyue Harbor The establishment of the harbor kicked off Liyue's seafaring trade. As Teyvat's largest market harbor, the sheer amount of goods that flow to and from it is simply incomparable for other ports.

Every year during the Lantern Rite you can see thousands of lanterns ascend into the night sky — a Liyue event that you can't afford to miss

Mt. Tianheng The pride of the mountain range that shelters Liyue Harbor from the west, acting as a natural shield against any enemies that may come that way.

There are uncountable records of wars both big and small whereby enemies have been blocked by this barrier. As such you can still see ancient ruins of city walls, forts, and defensive structures.
Liyue's earliest mining operations are also believed to have started in this area.

Dihua Marsh A wetland area north of Liyue, gets its name from the silvergrass ("dihua" in the local language) that grows in the shallows of the marsh.

The scrambling web of rivers has grown into a flourishing and wide-spread ecosystem full of flora and fauna — an awe-inspiring sight for travelers to the area.
The area also acts as the road from Mondstadt to Liyue, and as such many merchant caravans choose to stop here to rest. Wangshu Inn stands within the area, a symbolic structure from all directions.

Wangshu Inn A landmark within Dihua Marsh, built upon a massive stone pillar.

As most of the patrons that stop here are traveling merchants, the inn provides an area for them to trade and set up stalls. The view from the top of the inn is jaw-dropping — weather permitting you can see all the way to Mt. Qingce and Jueyunjian in the distance.
Legend amongst the stalls says that the tower of the inn hides a mysterious secret, but that's as far as the legend goes, as no-one has ever been able to validify the claims.

Qingce Village At the northernmost point of Liyue, hidden between the hills and the bamboo forests sits Qingce Village.

White rolling clouds that sit in the valleys between the mountains are embellished with row upon row of crescent-moon water paddies.
When the wind blows, the ripples in the water give off an array of colors.

Jueyunjian Dizzying peaks that sit shrouded in mist and clouds in the northwest of Liyue.

The area hides many stunning views, but owing to tracks found on the complex paths leading up the peaks, a legend has formed that the hidden home of the Adepti lies somewhere in the area. Though another factor may simply be the hopes of those that seek blessings from the Adepti.
Given the dangers within, the area is not suitable for outsiders. Best viewed from afar at Wangshu Inn.
