Hi Lavi,

As of now we can not navigate from one LWC to another LWC. But to handle other navigation from lwc please visit below links :

There is no direct way to navigate from one LWC to another. however there is a workaround. 
What you will need is to wrap that destination LWC in an Aura Component which implements lightning:isUrlAddressable and then Use NavigationMixin to navigate to that aura component. your JS for source LWC should look something like this :
import { NavigationMixin } from 'lightning/navigation';

export default class YOUR_COMPONENT  extends NavigationMixin(LightningElement) {

   handleClick(evt) {
            type: "standard__component",
            attributes: {
                componentName: "c__DESTINATION_AURA_COMPONENT"
            state: {

What I am not even sure is if this will work in Communities.

Hi  ,

There is a way by which you can navigate from one LWC to another LWC without wrapping up in the Aura component using the type as standard__webPage. Please find the code snippet below. 

handleNavigate() {
        var compDetails = {
            componentDef: "c:secondNavigationLWC",
            attributes: {
                //Value you want to pass to the next lwc component
                propertyValue: "500"
        // Base64 encode the compDefinition JS object
        var encodedCompDetails = btoa(JSON.stringify(compDetails));
            type: 'standard__webPage',
            attributes: {
                url: '/one/one.app#' + encodedCompDetails

Hi Maulik, 

can you please tell me that whether your code snippet will work on the lightning community page or not, as it's using the url '/one/one.app#'  & then the encoded url, that's why I am asking.

Hii Lavi__c,

Below I am giving an Example for your Query.

import { LightningElement } from 'lwc';
import { NavigationMixin } from 'lightning/navigation';

export default class NavigationExample extends NavigationMixin(LightningElement) {

handleNavigation() {
        type: 'standard__component',
        attributes: {
            componentName: 'c__MyLightningComponent'
        state: {
            c__counter: '5'
I hope it helps you.
kindly Let me inform if it helps you and close your query by choosing the best answer if you got your right answer so it can help others.
