How to Unlock Sahasra Slope Tower in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom

The Zelda Tears of the Kingdom Sahasra Slope Skyview Tower is probably one of the hardest ones to unlock. But before you can activate it, you need to find a way to unlock the door. Billson, the builder, is supposed to fix the Tower, but he can’t get in either. He says he’s too hungry to think of a solution. He suggests that you look for some delicious mushrooms in the nearby caves. Maybe if you bring him some, he will be more helpful. How can you convince Billson to open the door for you?

Zelda TOTK Billson Mushrooms In Cave Explained

The game is really trying to trick you here. Your conversation with Billson implies that you need to bring him some mushrooms from the cave in order for him to help you. However, these TOTK Billson’s cave mushrooms have absolutely nothing to do with unlocking the Sahasra Slope Tower. They are red herrings! However, you will still need to go to the cave, as that’s how you will enter the Sahasra Slope Tower. Namely, Billson only mentions the tasty mushrooms to send you towards the caves at the bottom of the hill. The entrance to the cave is in the rock below the Sahasra Slope Skyview Tower. Check out our images below to know where to enter.

How to Enter Sahasra Slope Tower From the Cave in Zelda TOTK

Once you enter the cave, you must break many rock barriers to reach the central area. Inside, you’ll find a few enemies, a chest, and some opals and sapphires. There are even some “Billson’s mushrooms” as well, but they are irrelevant to the quest. However, there’s seemingly no entrance to the Sahasra Slope Skyview Tower. The answer lies in the rock barriers. What you need to do is to clear the rock barriers until you reveal a hidden corridor in the centre of the cave.

Eventually, you will find yourself directly below the Sahasra Slope Skyview Tower. When you are directly below the Tower inside the caves, look up at the ceiling, and you’ll see a rock standing out from the others. To enter the locked Sahasra Slope Tower, you will need to use the Ascend ability here. This will propel you directly inside the Tower. When you enter the Sahasra Slope Skyview Tower, you’ll see two sticks blocking the door. Remove the sticks and open the door. Billson will now finally enter inside and repair the Tower.
