Nine Worlds

Yggdrasill from Loki Vol 1 2

The Nine Worlds of Asgardian cosmology are the separate worlds of that dimension supported by Yggdrasill, the World Tree. Although the realms are commonly divided into nine, further subdivisions can be made (i.e. Valhalla is a distinct portion of Asgard). Additionally, a tenth realm called Heven was previously cut-off from the rest of Yggdrasill until the death of the Watcher revealed its existence.[1] Thanks to the Allspeak, all Asgardians and related races can communicate in all of the languages of the Nine Realms, Earth's dialects, and various alien languages.[2]

Travel between realms is done via various portals and dimensional rifts. The Asgardians travel via the Bifrost the rainbow bridge that is guarded by Heimdall.[3]
