If you can’t figure out where Ponthos is in Zelda TOTK Lost in the Dunes, you’ve come to the right place. In this guide, we’ll show you how to find the location of Ponthos in Tears of the Kingdom and how to rescue him from his predicament. This is a tricky one, so don’t feel bad if you couldn’t solve it on your own.
Tears of the Kingdom Lost in the Dunes Ponthos Location
The location of Ponthos in the Zelda TOTK or Tears of the Kingdom Lost in the Dunes quest is actually underground. However, he’s not in the Underground Depths. No, Ponthos is just under the sands, so to speak. How do you get to him? Well, you’ll need to go to these coordinates in the desert: -3355, -2676, 0029. Once you get there, you’ll see a large sand vortex. Hop in and don’t worry, it’s safe. After a brief cutscene, you’ll find yourself in the Oasis Source. Head up the slope, and boom, there’s Ponthos. His exact coordinates are -3337, -2677, 0005. Talk to him, then walk up the stream until you find the breakable rock wall. Bust it open, then talk to Ponthos again.
And there you have it, that’s where you find the location of Ponthos in the Zelda Tears of the Kingdom or TOTK Lost in the Dunes quest. After you manage to rescue him, go back to the Kara Kara Bazaar and talk to the rest of the caravan. They’re at these coordinates: -3270, -2580, 0023. As a sign of gratitude, they will let you have the nearby orb. This is a part of the Mysterious Eighth quest, so you’ll have to figure out a way to bring the orb back to Gerudo Town. The easiest way to do so is build a vehicle. If you need further help with that quest, check out our The Mysterious Eighth Zelda Tears of the Kingdom Orb Locations guide for the full walkthrough.
