Hia Miu is one of the many Shrines located throughout Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The challenge inside, named the Hia Miu, one of many Test of Strength Shrines, has you taken on a powerful foe in combat.
Where to find Hia Miu
This is in Hebra region in the very north west of the map, right in the corner, meaning you'll need to undertake a pretty epic journey through some desolate lands.
There's a few ways you can get there; heading north from Rito Village, or west from the northern tip of Tabantha Tundra. We did the latter, and what few enemies are there are fairly easy to bypass since you can scale the mountain to a higher path and keep going.

We also have advice on how to beat Guardians, where to get easy Rupees, tame horses, find how to get cold resistance, fire resistance and heat resistance, and learn the most effective means of cooking with ingredients for bonus effects. We also have a DLC 1 guide and DLC 2 guide, including all Tingle, Majora's Mask, Phantom, Midna outfit locations.
As with everywhere else in the region, you'll need two cold protection, and be prepared for a bit of a hike and some climbing throughout the mountainous region, so if you have high stamina, that could be useful too.
Once inside, it's one of the game's many Test of Strength challenges - specifically against the hardest kind of Guardian Scout.
The prior link has details on how to best defeat it, and once you do, you'll receive a Sapphire as a reward.
