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.

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 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 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.
