The Path of Aganhei is the primary route bridging Tian Xia and Avistan across the Crown of the World. The path was first charted by the Tian-Min explorer Amatatsu Aganhei around 1300 AR.[1] Though his maps were thought destroyed, they resurfaced around 4300 AR, leading to dramatically increased trade between the two continents.[2] Despite its many dangers, the Path is a valuable trade route,[3] although completing it requires the aid of skilled guides.[4]

The Path is actually two overlapping trade routes, one connecting the Successor States of Lung Wa with the Realm of the Mammoth Lords and the Sellen Passage, the other carrying travelers from Minkai to the Lands of the Linnorm Kings.[5] This latter road begins in Hongal in Tian Xia,[3] crossing the Wall of Heaven through the Altan Zuud, climbs the High Ice at Ovorikheer Pass, descends back to the Outer Rim at Koumssa Gap, and enjoys relative safety as it passes through Hasanaliat and Urjuk before climbing the Rimethirst Mountains.[6] From there it branches, crossing the Stormspear Hills and ending at Kalsgard in the west[7] and running through miles of tundra toward Icestair in the east.[8]
