Where to Find Naydra’s Location in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom

Naydra is one of several dragons in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. This massive dragon emits energy imbued with the power of ice. And just like in Breath of the Wild, you will be able to jump on it and harness that energy. However, that’s easy to say but not always easy to do. Namely, Naydra only appears at a specific location in a specific period. Hence, you will need to be at the right place at the right time. So, where’s Naydra the Dragon’s location in Zelda TOTK?

Naydra appears in the West Necluda region. To be more precise, in the East Hill zone. In the first game, Naydra was usually visible from around 12 am until 6 am game time. However, in Tears of the Kingdom, we’ve managed to spot the dragon much earlier. Naydra is visible high in the sky almost non-stop. And if you are creative enough, you can jump on it even then. Namely, we’ve managed to jump on Naydra via the North Necluda Sky Archipelago.

However, to jump on Naydra from the ground, you must wait until around 9 pm in-game time. That’s when the dragon descends from the sky into the Depths via the East Hill Chasm. You can wait for Naydra around the edges of the East Hill Chasm at ~8:30 pm and use the opportunity when it starts plunging to jump with your paraglider.

Keep in mind that it starts being extremely cold when you approach the Dragon. Hence, you’ll need the Cold Resistance Armor or a lot of cold resistance food in order to survive being on Naydra. Once there, farm as many Shards of Naydra’s Spike and Naydra’s Scale as possible.

          Sleeping doesn’t seem to affect where the dragon is so time isn’t a reliable way to track it
