The path to Sumeru may be unclear, but there are ways as we explore possible theories to reach this area for the Genshin Impact 3.0 update.

The release of Genshin Impact's 3.0 update is just days away as Travelers anticipate making their long-awaited journey to Sumeru. Reaching the region's city can be achieved in a handful of ways; however, HoYoverse has yet to confirm how we can reach the new region.

But while many are gearing up for the exciting adventures that lie ahead, few Travelers may have outlined the route to this region. This guide explores plausible theories regarding how we can travel to Sumeru in the Genshin Impact 3.0 update.

How To Reach Sumeru In Genshin Impact?

With nothing confirmed by the developer as of writing, we'll be basing our theories on two specific leaks briefly detailed by two different dataminers. According to a prominent Genshin Impact source, UBatcha, geographically, Sumeru is to the left of The Chasm in Liyue as the underground section is possibly connected to Sumeru.

This theory was explored by YouTube channel SteezyZ revealed that Cinnabar Cliff has a tunnel that can be accessed from a Statue of the Seven gliding down and heading right from this POI. When traveling along the tunnel, the Traveler will experience some red flashes on the mini-map, which alludes that you cannot travel along this path, well, not exactly yet.

This will also prompt Paimon to inform you that the area to which the tunnel is connected isn't available. "How about we explore the area ahead of us later?" Paimon will inform you, but it's unclear if the 3.0 update will add new POIs inside The Chasm to link up with Sumeru.

The second possible way Travelers could reach Sumeru is by boat, likely the more obvious traveling method as Sumeru's point of entry is Port Ormos. This location is where the Graven Innocence event takes place and where Dori conducts her business, but there's a Daily Commission that connects the two locations.

When traveling to the Liyue Harbor, locate an NPC, Little Meng, to begin the Daily Commission, The Little Pirate Goes Out to Sea. This prompts you to teach him some cooking; afterward, hand him an ingredient to complete the Commission.

During the Commission, the NPC eagerly discusses what he knows about Sumeru, as his father is heading there to do some business. As he'll be joining his father on the trip, likely, he won't be able to go just yet as the region is still unavailable.

It's highly likely that once the 3.0 update launches and you visit Little Meng at Liyue Harbor, the Daily Commission will have a new objective concluding in Sumeru. Completing the Daily Commission will also award you the "Prelude to the Journey" achievement.

Whether on foot or the high seas, the journey to Sumeru eagerly excites Travelers once the 3.0 update is released. As many of the theories discussed have yet to be confirmed, we'll endeavor to provide more updates once more reliable information is available.

Genshin Impact's 3.0 update, The Morn a Thousand Roses Brings, releases 24th August 2022 for PlayStation consoles, mobile devices, and PC via the Epic Games Store.
