Great Plateau Shrine locations

Zelda Breath of the Wild great plateau shrine locations
In the first area – Great Plateau – you will find four Shrines:
  1. Keh Namut – Cryonis Trial
  2. Owa Daim – Stasis Trial
  3. Ja Baij – Bomb Trial

Hard part about these shrines are the ones in the mountains. In order to go through the snowy mountain, and reach the shrines you’ll need something to warm you up. You can use a torch melee weapon. Swing your torch over the fire to light it. If you have Spicy Pepper, Raw Meat and Hyrule Bass you can make Spicy Meat and Seafood Fry meal that gives cold resistance, and if you give the meal to the old man in the cottage during the night, he’ll reward you with Warm Doublet. We have a comprehensive guide How to protect from cold & solve Old Man’s Warm Doublet recipe.

You can drop from above it, slam into the breakable rocks, quickly drop your bomb and detonate it and if you have a fairy she will resurrect you and you can enter. If you don’t want to spend fairies you need to go to the cliff opposite of the breakable rocks. There are several large stones (some of them you can move with magnesis). Place them opposite of the breakable rock and use stasis and sledgehammers to launch them into the breakable rocks. Takes good positioning and about four hits with the sledgehammer to have it hit.

  3. Noya Neha – On the island north of Quarry Ruins, on the southern slope of a hill in the southwest corner of the island. Find the side overgrown with thorns, burn them away and use a bomb on the breakable rocks and reveal the shrine.
  4. Saas Ko’sah – In the northern part of Castle Hyrule. You’ll have to go inside and find a large stone brazier and ignite it. To get inside the castle, watch it from the mountain on the northwest. You’ll notice a part of the moat where the water flows into the castle. That’s your point of entry.
  5. Namika Ozz – In the northeast of Central Hyrule, in the center of Crenel Hills. Look inside the huge rocky formation that looks almost like a volcano opening.
  6. Kaya Wan – Just head a little to the west of Wetland Stables, which are near a wooded area south of Crenel Peak, near the eastern bank of the Hylia River.

Kass Shrine Quests

Kass is an NPC you will come across every now and then and he gives you quests with riddles to solve in order to discover shrines. We made a comprehensive guide for every Kass Shrine quest in the game and how to solve their puzzles. If you are stuck use that guide to uncover the shrines. Here are the shrine quests covered:

  • Qukah Nata Shrine – A Song of Storms
  • Shae Katha Shrine – The Serpent’s Jaws
  • Sasa Kai Shrine – Sign of the Shadow
  • Sheem Dagoze Shrine – The Two Rings
  • Mijah Rokee Shrine – Under a Red Moon
  • Mezza Lo Shrine – The Crowned Beast
  • Shai Yota Shrine – Master of the Wind

Shrines in Zelda BoTW

UPDATE: What follows is information we had on this page before the game came out and gives general information about shrines in Zelda BotW.

The shrines we’ve seen so far have all been underground. Their entrances were easy to notice – imagine a cave mouth adorned with glowing, orange runes. You’ll be able to spot them from quite far away, so use any chance you get at higher ground to scout out your surroundings. You can plant map markers on places you deem interesting, in case you don’t want to visit them right away.

Once you reach the shrine, you’ll use your Sheikah slate to gain entrance. The runes will turn blue, and an elevator will appear. Inside, jumping puzzles and challenges await. Many of them include finding inventive ways to use your rune powers. Getting to the end of the shrine is usually not that hard, so you’re pretty much guaranteed a spirit orb. However, there are other treasures inside, and they’ll often require a bit of lateral thinking.

They may include enemies, but the focus is usually not on fighting, but on figuring out a solution to the puzzles inside. They’re all tied by a theme in each shrine, so there isn’t much guessing involved. In case you do get stuck, we’re going to list the shrines and the solutions to their challenges on this page.

Once the game launches, on March 3rd, we’re going to start updating this guide with more info. If you discover a shrine that isn’t here, feel free to share your findings in the comments.

    South west of the Wasteland Tower is a Shrine surrounded by 7 Statues ( you have to find all the balls and put them on the right statues plate, look for the correct symbols on the Balls and statues, one ball in on one of the statues and the rest are scattered around, use Magnesis to find them.)
    Its called the “Korsh O’hu Shrine”.

    Yesterday in the desert, on the way to yida clan, outside the clan i found a mural but not sure how to make to shrine pop out. It had a stone carving riddle in the front saying to offer a shiny blue stone. Couldn’t figure out what it meant by shiny blue stone. Anyone know the name of this shrine and how to solve it?

      P

      Probably a luminous stone

      make it night and put down an luminous rock

      Y

      I think that’s Sho Dantu Shrine. Just break any ore deposit nearby for a Luminous stone and place it at the pedestal, that should work.

      Small Duck Weed

      Drop a luminous Stone on the platform

      S
      SpringROLZ

      Its a “luminous stone” that you have to place on the allter. They actually give you a hint as to what stone you have to provide because they have breakable ore materials surrounding the glowing pad. I believe they specify shiny only because it glows at night.

            You missed 1 in gerudo desert west of #2. You must beat the gut check challenge before taking it. You must have counted a shrine twice by accident.

            S
            Shahmeer Khan

            Thanks for the count. I can confirm that no shrines are missing. Go through each map and confirm that you have all the shrines on your map. Volkanis, that shrine you are talking about “gerude desert west of #2” is included in the Gerudo highlands map. I have confirmed it.

            If you have everything on the maps and still have a couple of orbs missing then you have incomplete shrines. You can ACTIVATE shrines for fast travel but when you complete the puzzle and claim the orb only then it is COMPLETED. Look through your map for any shrine markers that are blue on the outside but orange inside (you may have to zoom as I kept missing one) and that will be the ones you need to COMPLETE.
            Thanks Author(s) for an awesome detailed list.

    There is a shrine you’re missing from the quest “Test of Will” which is west of the digdogg bridge and north of mount nabooru. Zoom in on the area and you’ll see a small circle being touched by ~10 smaller circles. That’s the logcation.

          S
          Shahmeer Khan

          I can confirm that all shrines are there as I have followed this guide to get all 120. The arrangement or sections are of course mostly arbitrary so in some of the pictures you see a shrine missing but it is in fact present in another map/area. If you are missing shrines then please check everything with map and ensure that you do not have incomplete shrines that have an orange interior on the map marker.

    #20 To Quomo Shrine North Hebra Summit

    If you’re having trouble finding after checking this guide, please keep reading:
    This guide is very helpful, however on some of the more important/easily missable shrines it’s very vague and time wasting. To the makers of this guide, if you don’t have complete/concise information on the location of a shrine, say so. For example: Saying that the shoe store is west of K-mart, versus saying; to get to the shrine first go north of J Street, to the right of the fire hydrant find the path leading to downward to the underground, traverse the labyrinth to find the store which ends up being west of K-mart on your map.

    To relate this to the game, YES To Quomo is “north of Hebra summit” on the goddamn mini map, however you must first go south east of North Hebra Summit (just as it says on the map, and it’s literally just slighlty SE of it on the map), it’s below a cliff SE of North Hebra Summit. You’ll find two large stone doors at the bottom of a small valley in the cliff face. THIS IS THE ENTRANCE! To the writers of this guide, if you’re going to type something as vague as “North of hebra summit”, when in actuality that’s maybe 1/12 of the information needed, don’t type anything at all. Sometimes “too little” information can lead to a waste of time, ie. spending an hour+ traversing the northern cliff face looking for the shrine/entrance. If you’re going to make a guide – then make a guide, don’t post in haste of trying to get content out there before everyone which is incomplete.

    Well I take it i’m not getting any help with my problem- But you also forgot to list that for the 6th Gerudo Highlands shrine you need to complete ‘The Test of Ultimate Endurance’. I wasted about 2 hours last night because I thought it was just sitting out in the open.

    E-ZombieHERO

    Followed your guide to a “T” and made it to 116 shrines complete before I realized I am missing 4 shrines.

    Two of which I had confirmed are accessible, post Divine Beast battles, but that left me to question if the other two where the same.

    So I took a look at your complete map and realized it was #7 and #20 of Hebra region, xD man are those way out there.

    Also am I the only one to find it odd that only two are post Divine Beast Battles?

    Last note I’d like to mention #11 Tho Kayu Shrine of Gerudo Desert only appears visible under the “M” of Toruma Dunes if the player is viewing the map at 2x zoom.

    I figured lots of people are probably confused and angry about the way you described that, other wise the guide was detailed enough for me to comprehend (despite others crying about details)

    Thank you for the help and good job!

      Gosu No0b

      Thank you for your kind words. We were in a big rush to create this guide and it went through dozens of revisions as we were adding more detailed and better descriptions. I think it is in a good state right now, but we’ll go through a couple more to make it perfect)

    I’ve double checked my map a ton, and the only shrine I haven’t done is the one where you need to get the orb off of Impa- But I’ll still only end up with 119. I’ve gone through and checked every section and made sure I have all the shrines and as far as i can see I do, without having to count. Is there a hidden spirit orb or something?

      A
      Alex

      I’m having the same issue I’ve gone back and counted them on my map with this guide and I ended up at 119. I know when you add all these numbers in the guide is 120 but I checked for myself a couple times so idk why I’m missing 1

        G
        Gosu No0b

        Did you check the three shrines that are right next to each other in West Necluda? When counting I usually miss one of those three, cause they are so close together.

        S
        Shahmeer Khan

        I ran into same issue where I tallied every thing with all the maps on this page and was coming up with 119 orbs/shrine. I got so frustrated that I recovered/delete all my markers and started tagging the shrines I had with one marker at a time to find out if there were any duplicates in the maps on the site. What i found was That I had ACTIVATED one shrine but NOT COMPLETED it.
        So go through your shrines on the map with a zoom or two and try to find any shrines (on the map) that have a blue marker but with ORGANGE in the middle. This will tell you that the shrine is activated for fast travel but NOT cleared. Clear these and you should have full spirit orbs. Thanks Gosu Noob for the awesome map

    I just solved my 119 shrines problem. I also thought this guide missed one.. after checking all the shrines like 10 times compared to this list I concluded I had to have 120 shrines found already. After wanting to checking them out 1 by 1, I read that on the map the middle will show orange in case the orb wasn’t obtained. It’ll be complete orange when you haven’t yet entered. So make sure you have all, you have to hover on all of the shrine icons to check they are all blue.

    Hope this will help some of you..

    Thank you for this guide! You obviously put a lot of effort into this. It’s awesome! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I would, however, like to request that you add the titles of the shrines along with them, (example: “A Minor Test of Strength”) so we can seek out specific ones. (Or procrastinate certain ones….ha!) It would also be absolutely fantastic if you could include what rewards are given (in chests and dropped) for each shrine (example: Ancient Core) so that if we were looking for a particular item, we can seek out that shrine as well. It is my understanding that the drops are not randomized, so a reward should be something that would be found by others.

    You’ve already done so much, but these additions would make for the absolute most perfect guide! Thanks again!

      Thank you for the kind words. The additional information that you would like to see in this guide is already listed in the Shrine Rewards & Challenges Guide.

      Shahmeer Khan

      I had a similar issue with only 119 showing when everything matched the maps on this site. So eventually it turned out that I had one shrine ACTIVATED but not COMPLETE. Zoom in on your map and go through all your shrine icons. Any incomplete shrines will have an orange core with a blue outline. You will find the two incomplete but activate shrine. Complete those to get 120 orbs. Profit.
