Ne'ez Yohma is one of the many Shrines located throughout Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The challenge inside, named the Pushing Power trial, is a puzzle that has you use your Cryonis ability to manipulate falling boulders. Get it right, and you'll walk out a success.

If you need help finding and solving other Shrines, our Shrine location maps page can help, while our Zelda: Breath of the Wild walkthrough and guide covers other aspects of the game.

Where to find Ne'ez Yohma

The Ne'ez Yohma shrine is located within the Lanayru Tower region, specifically in the heart of Zora's Domain, underneath the Throne Room. To get there, head east from Lanayru Tower and follow the series of bridges and paths through the mountains, that are lit by blue torches.

For more on this journey and the area, it's worth taking a look at our Breath of the Wild walkthrough of Zora's Domain and the main quests it ties into.

There's no puzzle to solve here in order to access the shrine, so simply dive in when you're ready.

Ne'ez Yohma and Pushing Power trial solution

On entering the Trial, you'll be faced with a large sloped surface covered in running watter, with a series of walls and boulders on top of it. Your job is to get the special boulder-sized orb from the back left of that slope down and over a series of walls, to the socket in the bottom right.

29b

First up, head up the left hand side of the slope, until you reach the wall with the chest on top. Create a Cryonis pillar to get over the beam, which will damage you on contact, then another by the wall. Climb on it, and hop up to open the chest, which contains a Zora Spear.

29c

Now, you need to create a new pillar in the gap just to the right of the platform you're standing on, with the idea of blocking any boulders that hit it and diverting them to the slanted wall to the right.

We also have a DLC 1 guide and DLC 2 guide, including all Tingle, Majora's Mask, Phantom, Midna outfit locations.


With that done, head up to the very top of the slope, where you'll find a static, boulder-sized orb. Create a Cryonis pillar behind it on the wall to push it off the podium.

29e

Then, create a pillar underneath it, to pop it up onto the ramp in front and set it rolling.

29f

Run along the frame to the far left side to keep a good view of the ramp, until you get right to the bottom. There, you want to create a new pillar about halfway along the bottom-most slanted wall - the orb's likely static at the moment at the wall in front of that, but it'll soon be hitting this one.

29g

Turning back to the hopefully static orb, put a pillar underneath it to pop it over this penultimate wall and down to the pillar you've just placed.

29h

And finally, it's time to put another pillar underneath it again, to push it up and over the last sloped wall and into the socket on the other side.

29i

That's it! On to the next.
