Zanaris is a hidden underground kingdom. According to the fairy queen, it is "a meeting point of cultures, those from many worlds converge here to exchange knowledge and goods". Accessing it requires completion of the Lost City quest. The player must attempt to open the door of the shack in Lumbridge swamp with a Dramen staff equipped, they will then be teleported to it. It is noteworthy for having the only shop that sells dragon swords in its marketplace.
Zanaris is underground from the perspective of the game engine, because of this, the lighting flickers, as with any other dungeon. When talking to the fairy queen, the player may ask "How do crops and such survive down here? Surely they need a bit of sunlight?". The fairy queen replies, "Clearly you come from a plane dependent on sunlight. Down here the plants grow in the aura of the faerie."
- A mill with nearby wheat and fountains
- Closest range to a bank (with two close-by chocolate bar spawns)
- Otherworldly being spawns
- Jinno, an ore certer, and Watto, a bar certer
- Jakut's shop in the marketplace is the only way to obtain dragon swords that does not involve another player
- A general store with nearby bank
- A sand pit
- A furnace
- A bucket spawn
- An egg spawn (far from the bank, near the entrance)
- A small number of regular trees
The bank is close to the useful skilling features. This makes Zanaris a convenient location for killing Otherworldly beings, selling junk items to the general store, making dough, cooking, shearing sheep, and milking cows. However, shearing sheep and banking at Ardougne's northern bank may be faster due to the larger number of sheep. Most players use the certers in Draynor and the range and general store in Catherby due to Zanaris being considered an inconvenient location to reach initially, and in the case of the range, not having any nearby fishing spots. Al-Kharid is generally the preferred location for smelting, because of the shorter distance between the furnace and the bank.
The player must pay a trading tax of one cut Diamond to enter or exit the marketplace of Zanaris. An alternative exit from the marketplace is a ladder leading upwards to a location south of Al Kharid's bank. The marketplace contains Fairy Lunderwin (who will buy cabbages for 100gp, which is not very efficient because of the high cost of diamonds), a ruby ring trader (Irksol), and a dragon sword trader (Jakut).
