Zelda - Sha Gehma and Shift and Lock solution in Breath of the Wild

How to solve the Hebra region trial.

Sha Gehma is one of the many Shrines located throughout Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The challenge inside, named the Shift and Lock, is a puzzle that has to move a box in creative ways.

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 Sha Gehma

This is to the north east of the Hebra Mountains, at the northern tip of the Tabantha Tundra, right at the cliff edge. You'll need level two freezing protection to reach it safely.


The easiest way to get there is to visit the Snowfield Stable, which is one the road north east of the region's Hebra Tower, then head directly north.

The only thing to worry about is a Lynel in the north of the field, not far from the Shrine, but if you go a little east then you should avoid its gaze.


Sha Gehma and Shift and Lock solution

The objective is to get to the chest with the metal box on top that's located in the middle of the sloped walkway that wind up the middle of the shrine.

To lift the box, stand above it using the walkway, and use Magnesis to raise it up to the top. Drop it on one of the two moving platforms when they are underneath to suspend it.

Quickly change to Statis to freeze the box in place. Now leap off the platform (don't just drop down, or you'll miss the platform!) and land next to the crate to find a Small Key. Use this to access the altar.
