How to pass the third trial in the Genshin Impact Dreams Beneath the Searing Sand World Quest

Maneuver your way around the invisible barriers.

Dreams Beneath the Searing Sand is the fourth part of the Golden Slumber World Questline, detailing the archaeological team's expedition to the Khaj-Nisut. After finding clues in the area, you'll be asked to Pass the three trials, located west, north, and south of the area.

While you can do the three trials in any order, this guide will walk you through all the puzzle solutions to complete the trial south of Khaj-Nisut. You can find walkthroughs of the other puzzles below:

Follow the quest marker toward the south of Khaj-Nisut, where you'll find a pyramid-shaped entrance to a monument. Enter it and interact with the Control Unit at the top of the stairs, which will open up an entry on the right side. Jump down (be careful of fall damage!) to enter a room filled with barriers. Your goal is to find a way to the floor.
