The junction between Liyue Harbor and the great mines of the Chasm. Work has ceased here as of late due a shift deep within the Chasm.Beyond the Chasm
The Chasm is located west of the Lisha region of Liyue and is the primary source of ores in the nation. Recently, a series of mysterious accidents led the entire mine to be closed, putting its workers out of a job for the time being.
It is currently not accessible in-game, and it's shown as a black area on the map.
According to legend, the Chasm was formed by a falling star somewhere around 6000 years ago. This meteorite had a "proud and agitated temper," and during the Archon War, the constant strife caused this meteorite to leap back into the heavens, leaving behind the massive expanse that was the Chasm. Dunyu Ruins was created by a fragment of this same meteorite.
Sometime during or after the Archon War, the people of Liyue came to the area to mine. Azhdaha, who resided inside, greatly suffered when the humans disturbed the Ley Lines within. Morax and the Mountain Shaper, Moon Carver and a third unknown adepti would fight the crazed elemental being, fighting their way down to the deepest depths of the Chasm, which also resulted in the creation of Dragonfall. After Azhdaha was sealed, humans returned to the Chasm once more to mine.
In recent times, a mysterious series of accidents has led to the Chasm being closed entirely despite its wealth. Hilichurls have taken over the area outside the Chasm and even Treasure Hoarders are scouting it as a result of less activity. Treasure Hoarder Crushers were originally miners from the Chasm.

- Notice: "The myriad mountains of Tianheng are a trove of a thousand treasures, for deep within the rocks bounteous jade gleams gloriously. Yet, sinister forces now beset the Chasm; its glorious gems are hidden and their crimson glow gone. The road to the retrieval of riches is rife with ruin... perilous is the path to the procurement of precious elixirs..."
- Notice: "Wherefore did I immediately proceed to discuss this predicament with all Yuehai Pavilion, that they might vote on the fate of mining activities at the Chasm. Their verdict today was that it is inadvisable to continue, and all activity should cease immediately. Let it be known to all: eschew lust for riches and instead pine for a better tomorrow; be drawn not to noctilucous glow, but instead set your gaze on the perfect guidance of fate and time."
