The exact origin of the Evil Infested Ridge had been long forgotten. It is not a Burial Ground nor an Ancestral Earth, and can not be truly compared with them, but still it is a rare ground with treasures and riches. The Evil Infested Ridge had an abundance of godly ores, a plethora of spirit medicines and herbs, and it is inhabited by Heavenly Beasts and Longevity Spirits of various types and age.

First battle against Evil Typha Tree

They encountered Evil Typha Tree and Xue Xi prepared countless methods to eliminate and destroy it completely. However, due to the accident during the battle, Evil Typha Tree managed to survive, while many traps that Xue Xi prepared were left unused.

They then brought the Ridge back to the Grand Middle Territory and it became a part of the Cleansing Incense Ancient Kingdom. At that time, Dark Crow was afraid that it would leave behind a potential disaster for the sect, so he left behind two extremely powerful preparations to suppress this place. Even if Evil Typha Tree had a glimmer of life, it wouldn't be able to revive.
Little Silly was one of these preparations. Dark Crow left Little Silly in the west part of the Ridge, and asked Immortal Emperor Min Ren to use imperial Amnesty Decree to protect the area from intrusions.
Immortal Emperor Min Ren placed a seal inside of the Evil Infested Ridge that prevented anyone above the Ancient Saint level from entering. Even a Virtuous Paragon would be killed if they tried to force their way in, and only another Immortal Emperor could enter without problem.[?]
Difficult Dao Era
The situation changed by the end of the Emperors Era. When the Cleansing Incense Ancient Kingdom was destroyed by the Heavenly God Sect, the Cleansing Incense Ancient Sect lost control over almost all its former territory, including the Evil Infested Ridge.
In the eyes of various nations and sects, the Evil Infested Ridge was an alluring treasury and all of them wanted a part of it. So, even though the Heavenly God Sect defeated Cleansing Incense Ancient Sect, it did not dare to own the Evil Infested Ridge alone and had to share it with the rest of the world. However, only grand sects and powerful nations were qualified to enter the Evil Infested Ridge, while the small sects and ordinary cultivators could not enter.
To the Cleansing Incense Ancient Sect the most humiliating part was not the lose of the Evil Infested Ridge per se, but their inability to enter it ever since. Because of their decline in power, the Sect was treated as a third-rate one and thus was not qualified to enter the Ridge.

The Evil Infested Ridge opened again at the start of the Current Era. Many sects and nations, including Heavenly Jewel Kingdom, Jiangzuo Clan, Southern Heavenly Kingdom, Azure Mysterious Ancient Kingdom and others, entered the Ridge. The Cleansing Incense Ancient Sect also came this time, led by Li Qiye.
- It was likely named after the Evil Typha Tree that "infested" the ridge.
