City Map:


There are two ways of entering the Lost City. Initially, one must enter through the small shed located in the Lumbridge Swamp while equipped with a Dramen staff or a Lunar staff. However, once a player has completed Fairy Tale III, it is no longer a requirement to wield any staff to enter. Just use any fairy ring to get to the Lost City.

For those who haven't completed the Fairy Tale III quest, equip a Dramen staff or Lunar staff and enter the small shed in the Lumbridge Swamp.


  1. Entrance Portal:
    Upon entering through the small shed, you will land at the entrance portal. You can use the fairy ring to get back to the small shed in the Lumbridge Swamp, or use a Raw chicken at the Evil Chicken statue to enter the Evil Chicken Lair (see step 19). An Egg spawns in front of the Evil Chicken's statue.

  2. Market Doors:
    To access the market area of Zanaris, you have to pay a Diamond to go through the doors. Fortunately, you do not need to pay a diamond to return. However, once you have completed the Fairy Tale III quest, entrance to the market area is free. Inside, you will find several shops and two Yew trees. The market fairy Lunderwin will buy Yew logs any for 100 coins.

Starting here, click on the ring and enter the code for where you wish to go, the codes will auto save in a menu for you to refer to in future trips. All fairy rings outside Zanaris lead to this one. Fairy Fixit will tell you all you need to know about fairy rings. There is also a pond next to the fairy rings which provides as a water source. Sheep also roam freely around the Fairy Ring area. These sheep are shear-able!
