Songs of a Distant Home is a set of echoing conches you can collect in Genshin Impact. In the limited-time Golden Apple Archipelago region, you'll find echoing conches scattered across the islands, and collecting them will net you some great rewards.

But the Songs of a Distant Home set also contains a secret. Once you collect all of them, you'll uncover the secret of a family heirloom, and unlock a treasure chest at the center of Twinning Isle. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to find all five of the echoing conches and complete this side quest.

All the conches in the Songs of a Distant Home set can be found on Twinning Isle. Together, they tell the story of a family that was stranded on the island long ago.

Begin your quest by heading to the location below on Twinning Isle. There's an echoing conch there that hints at a family heirloom that was abandoned at the center of the island. You'll then receive the side quest, "They Who Hear the Sea."

If you click "Navigate" on the side quest, you'll be directed to a location at the center of Twinning Isle, where you can dig in the ground for a treasure chest - but it'll be locked. To unlock the chest, you'll need to find the remaining four conches, which together hold the key to the puzzle.

The first conch can be found on a small island to the southeast of the teleport waypoint, shown below.

You'll find the next conch on the island directly to the east of that one.

Another conch can be found at the very southern tip of the southern island of Twinning Isle.

Finally, the last conch is directly east of the Teleport Waypoint, halfway down the cliff.

Each conch will give you a piece of a nursery rhyme. If you open the event page and go to "Conch Retrospection", then click on the Songs of a Distant Home set, you'll see the four lines of the nursery rhyme laid out in order.

The first word of each line is a number, and together, they spell out the code for the treasure chest. Head back down to the treasure chest, enter the code 5-2-1-4, and you'll be rewarded with 40 Primogems and a couple other items.
