There are some moments in Genshin Impact that stop you in your tracks. Perhaps it was when you emerged from a cave and viewed Sumeru for the first time. Maybe it was glimpsing Liyue Harbor from a far-off mountain peak. Either way, we've all had these experiences where beauty is too loud to be ignored. Come join us as we discover the 18 most beautiful locations in Genshin Impact.
18 scenic places in Genshin Impact
Southern Watatsumi Island
This gorgeous photo is taken from the perspective of the Teleport Waypoint at the southern end of Watatsumi Island. From this mountainside, you can see the Sangonomiya Shrine in all its glory. This location conveys the sheer scale of the shrine, leaving us without words.
Statue of the Omnipresent God
This photo was taken from the head of the Statue of the Omnipresent God in Inazuma City. Although this statue represents the horrors of the Vision Hunt Decree, it possesses a lovely view of Narukami Island. With scenery like this, it is difficult to avoid feeling hopeful about the future of Inazuma.
This photo was taken on top of a lamppost on the western end of Qingce Village, next to the Teleport Waypoint. The location was captured without zoom, so the maximum amount of landscape could be included.
Liyue Harbor Bridge
This photo was taken on the bridge to Liyue Harbor in the north. This is most likely the first time players see Liyue Harbor, and this location introduces players to the city's beautiful streets.
This photo was taken from the outskirts of The Chasm, next to the Statues of the Seven on the western side. It is challenging to imagine the massive dimensions of The Chasm, but this location helps convey the scale. The Chasm looks lovely from this location.
This photo was taken from the top of a giant lily pad in west Vanarana. To find this location, follow the path with the small pond in northern Sumeru, following the road east. There is a four-leaf clover on top of a nearby house that you can use to glide down to the large lily pad.
This photo was taken from a mountaintop west of Devantaka Mountain, next to the Statue of the Seven. This locale captures the majesty of the ancient automaton nestled in the cliffs. The blue-tinted light makes this location look especially beautiful at night.
This photo was taken from the base of the Frostbearing Tree in Dragonspine. This tree is located directly next to a Teleport Waypoint near the Snow-Covered Path in north Dragonspine. While this space portrays the cruelty of the cold, it also depicts the unceasing fight for life in hostile environments.
This photo was taken from the north side of the Mawtiyima Forest, northeast of the Teleport Waypoint at the top of the Lokapala Jungle. While this view cannot be seen from overhead, the underbelly of Mawtiyima Forest reveals a valley of bioluminescent fungi.
Apam Woods Tree Trunk
This photo was taken from the trunk of a tree in the northwest Apam Woods. To navigate to this location, teleport to the waypoint in the northwest area of Apam Woods, then follow the platforms down until you get to the small house. From here, go down one more platform, and there should be a small shelf with two Rukkhashava Mushrooms.
Guyun Stone Forest
This photo was taken from the beach in the north area of the Guyun Stone Forest. To find this location, teleport to the waypoint to the west of the Geo Hypostasis and walk east. From here, you can view this cliff and several others.
This photo was taken from the small island in the middle of Starfell Lake. This location lies directly next to the Statue of the Seven in northeast Mondstadt. This angle points back to where players first began their adventure in Genshin Impact.
This photo was taken from a beach in Yaoguang Shoal, next to an amber-colored tree. To find this location, teleport to the Yaoguang Shoal waypoint, then walk northwest until you reach a golden tree. To recreate this photo, face west and walk into the water.
This photo was taken from the tip of Cape Oath in eastern Mondstadt. If you face northwest, you can see a majority of Mondstadt from this location. The view is absolutely breathtaking.
Grand Narukami Shrine
This photo was taken from Mt. Yougou southeast of the Grand Narukami Shrine. To navigate to this area, teleport to the Narukami Shrine waypoint and glide to the southeast mountains. Land on the small floating landmass with an Electrogranum, and you've reached the location.
This photo was taken from the Statue of the Seven in Koseki Village. To recreate this image, walk north of the Statue of the Seven and look southeast. If you time your shot correctly, you can capture a lightning strike.
This photo was taken from the Statue of the Seven in Ritou. It captures both the Ritou village and the harbor from which you first enter Inazuma. To recreate this image, face south and point your camera slightly upwards.
This photo was taken from southern Jueyun Karst, near both a Teleport Waypoint and the Taishan Mansion domain. To find this area, teleport to the waypoint south of Jueyun Karst in central Minlin. From here, look northwest across the wooden bridge.
