Hestu is a secret vendor in Zelda Breath of the Wild. He’s a giant Korok, who can help you increase your inventory. In exchange, he asks for Korok seeds you’ve collected. He changes his location several times, so you might have trouble finding him. In this guide, we’re going to show you Zelda Breath of The Wild Hestu locations, to help with your inventory upgrade.

Your first encounter with Hestu will happen in Necluda, on the road between Dueling Peaks Stable and Kakariko Village. You’ll see him by the road shortly after you cross the Kakariko Bridge. You’ll have to do a small favor for him before he agrees to upgrade your inventory.
After he’s traded korok seeds with you a couple of times, he’ll move. His next place of residence is by the Riverside Stable in the Hyrule Field area, directly west from Kakariko Village. As you pass the stable and follow the road to the northeast, you’ll see him next to a tree by the road.
Finally, he appears in his home, Korok Forest. It’s hidden deep in the Great Hyrule Forest, in the north of the map, a bit to the west of the great volcano. You’ll need to traverse the fog in the Lost Woods to get there. If you need help with that, check out our Master Sword guide. Once you’re in the forest, you’ll find Hestu to the right of where to sword is.
He’ll settle down in the last location, so you won’t have to go chasing him around after that. Getting through the fog puzzle can be a pain though, so we’d advise you to get enough seeds for several upgrades before you venture into the Lost Woods.
