Rich and precious chests behind boxes
The first secret on our way is located in the northern part of Li Yue. You can get to it from the Mountain Watch dungeon. Go down the mountain a bit to see two fences next to the entrance to the cave. Go down and defeat a group of hilichurls.
After that, break the box that covers a small passage, and take three chests: two rich and one precious.
Regular Chest by Box
Travel to the Statue of the Seven Archons in the Reeds area islands and run north. Break the box in the tent and get a regular chest.
To find another hidden treasure, run from the Statue of the Archons to the islet to the southwest. A rich chest is buried near the northernmost stone.
Wanshu Inn< /h2>
Cryo Monument and Rich Chest
From the teleport in the inn, go down to the water mill. Here, go under the bars and activate the Cryo Totem – get a rich chest.
Another puzzle in the area requires a Geo Traveler – you can activate his Geo abilities at the Archon Statue .
From the inn, fly northeast to a small island. Here you will see 6 lion statues sitting in a circle. Use the Traveler's elemental skill to place a Geo Construct on an empty space in the circle and a regular chest will appear.
The inn hides another secret. Move to the teleport and go up to the top floor. Explore the rock garden and talk to Paimon.
After that, teleport north of Li Yue Harbor and proceed to the location marked on the map below. Climb up the mountain and find a place with a shovel. Dig up a precious chest.
Slimes and rich chest
To find another hidden chest, fly north from the teleporter in the inn. Here go around the group of umbrellas, defeat the slimes that have appeared and open a rich chest. The slimes may not appear immediately, so be patient and go around the umbrellas a couple more times.
Vines and chest
Finally, the last puzzle in the area is located on one of the lower floors of the inn. The chest is on a wooden platform, surrounded by thorny thickets – you can get rid of them with the help of Pyro.
Travel to the teleporter west of Vanshu. You will immediately see the dragon's head. Place any Geo construct on the top of his head and you'll get a regular chest.
Guyun Stone Forest
Pile of rocks on a boat
From the teleporter, go to the island in the southeast. Find a mountain of rocks with a boat on top. Climb onto the boat and destroy the pile of pebbles to get the precious chest.
Rich chest in a niche
Another treasure is hidden near the Guyun Domain dungeon. Go to the right side of the entrance – there will be a small hole in the wall with a rich chest in it.
Rich chest on the roof of the hilichurl hut
Now, from the dungeon, go to the northeastern part of the island. You will come across a Hilichurl camp, for the extermination of which you will receive a precious chest. But another one is hidden right there – in a hut at the very top. Destroy all the wooden pillars, eliminate the sleeping hilichurl – and then a rich chest will appear.
Buried chests on the island
Go to the northernmost island of the stone forest. There is one ordinary chest buried here in the northern part of the island and one rich chest near the boat. A pressure plate is buried in the western part of the island: by placing a Geo construct on it, you will create an air flow that will help you get to the island of the heart – we have a separate guide about this puzzle. In general, there are many more “dig” functions on this small island, but they will summon enemies, so be careful.
Chest and path of petals
From the Statue of the Archons, fly northeast. Find a stone with shiny particles and step on it. Then follow the particles along the branches – a precious chest will appear at the end.
Pyro monument in water
The fastest way to get to the right place is from the Abandoned Ruins dungeon. Swim to a small island to the east. Here under the water, near the submerged boat, lies the Pyro monument. To set it on fire, you can either build an ice bridge by Keiya and throw an Ember Bunny, or create a Geo construct with a Traveler or Zhong Li and jump off a Pyro catalyst – Yan Fei, for example. For activating the monument, you will receive a rich chest.
Hydro monument in the water
Another monument is located to the east. It's a Hydro totem. You can activate it by climbing Barbara/Mona on the Geo structure and attacking the monument from it. The reward is a precious chest.
Bonfire and rich chest
Now head northwest to a larger island. Burn the wood and defeat the Abyssal Pyro to get a rich chest.
Wooden pillar and rich chest
From the Statue of the Archons, run south, go downhill. Destroy the wooden post, defeat the three hilichurls and get a rich chest.
Fires and rich chest
To find another treasure, head to the northern part of the location. Burn wood, defeat Slime Pyro and Abyssal Pyro, get rich chest.
Torches and Precious Chest
From the teleporter, head northeast. Here you will see many torches. Set fire only to those that are on the triangular path – just in case, we marked them in the screenshot. The reward for the puzzle is a precious chest.
Targets and rich chest
Now run east. Destroy three Hilichurl targets to get a rich chest.
Sea of Clouds
Geo Monuments and Eye of the Storm
Go to the place indicated on the map. Here you need to activate the Geo totems located in a spiral, starting from its end. The most convenient way to solve this puzzle is to take the archer Goro into the squad. After activating the monuments, defeat the Eye of the Storm and get a precious chest.
Anemo monuments and pressure plate
From this puzzle head west. In the ruins, activate the Anemo totem, jump down, activate another monument and place the Geo construct on the special circle. You need to do all this pretty quickly, so we advise you to use Anemo Archer – Faruzan or Venti – or use Sayu's elemental skill to quickly ride from one totem to another. The reward is a precious chest.
Geogran and Geo lamp
The next puzzle is located in the northeast. Find a large curved tree and destroy the geogran, and then go around the tree and bring the grana to the “flashlight”. The reward is a rich chest.
Leaves and rich chest
Now teleport to the Archon Statue and run east. Having crossed the mountains, you will find a wooden dilapidated house. Next to it, use the sense of the elements – you will see piles of leaves that can be dispelled by Anemo or burned by Pyro. Destroying all heaps will give you a rich chest.
Buried Rich Chest
Continue heading east. A rich chest is buried near Roald's camp.
Go north from the Archon Statue. You will see a piece of land in the shape of a cross, at 3 ends of which there are stones. Place a Geo Construct on the 4th empty end and get a Rich Chest.
Press plate and cobblestone
Head to the western part of the valley. Here, on one of the disks, there is a huge stone. Install a Geo Construction on the second disk to get a rich chest.
Explosive barrels and a hidden passage
A group of hilichurls live in the eastern part of the lake. Defeat them and blow up the barrels to get access to a rich chest. Be prepared to encounter a couple of Electro Cicins near the treasure.
Li Yue Harbor
How to get the Dark Iron Sword
In the harbor of the Geo region, you can purchase not only treasures, but also unique weapons that cannot be obtained in any other way. After going to the right of the teleporter, you will see Sharp Chen's shop. In a conversation with him, select the replica “How is the trade?”. Continue the conversation and the trader will give you a Dark Iron Sword, a 3-star weapon that increases MS and attack power with certain reactions.
Chest of pestilence
Now fast forward to the northern teleport in the harbor. Get to Xing Xi's shop and go up the stairs to the Bank of the Northern Kingdom. In the bank itself, climbing up again, you will find a chest with 200,000 mora.
Luxury chest in the city
Another treasure can be found at the pier. After picking up the precious chest, go up the stairs – a luxurious chest awaits you at the top. The location of all such chests in the specified region can be found in our separate guide.
Hidden gem chest
A little to the west is an elusive treasure chest.
Chest on the rock
Teleport to a point near Tianheng Mountain and fly east – you will notice a precious chest on the mountain.
Torches and chest
Travel to the teleport north of the harbor and head south. Light 3 torches in any order to get a rich chest.
Leaves and Buried Chest
Slightly to the north you can see a fairy, Little Zuo and a bunch of leaves. Evolve her Anemo to be able to dig up a rich chest.
Buried Rich Chest
From the teleport in the southwestern part, go up to the northeast, to the waterfall. Find a place with many bamboos and crystals. Here you can dig a rich chest.
From Qingyun Peak, go down to the east. There is a frog statue near the bridge that you can inspect and get a rich chest.
Hidden chests on the mountain
From the previous location, go up the mountain to the north. Stop at the location shown in the screenshot – a regular chest will appear.
Another similar hidden treasure can be found in the northwest.
Chest buried under the bushes
From the Taishanfu Dungeon, go a little to the northeast. Destroy the bushes to dig up a rich chest.
Toad Statues and Buried Treasure
From the Statue of the Archons, go down a little to the south. There are 3 frog statues here – stand between them to dig up a rich chest.
Fires and rich chest
From the pass, run along the path to the northeast. Here you will come across a Hilichurl camp – ignore them and move on. Behind the camp there is a piece of wood that can be set on fire. After this action, you will have to fight a few Pyro Slimes, and then you will get a rich chest.
Toppled Statue and Treasure
From the teleporter in the valley, go south. Here, at the feet of a fallen statue, you can find a rich chest. Be careful, as soon as you get close to the statue, Pyro Jumpers will spawn around.
These are all the hidden chests, stashes, hidden treasures, and secrets we managed to find in Li Yue in Genshin Impact. If you are interested in Geo region puzzles, then we advise you to check out our other guide.
