Where to find Dah Hesho

The Dah Hesho Shrine is located in the Dah Hesho region, which is on the north-east side of the map.

It's more or less directly east of the Akalla region tower, next to Lake Akkala.

Our Zelda: Breath of the Wild walkthrough and guide steps to completing the game's main quests - including Divine Beasts Vah Ruta, Vah Rudiana, Vah Medoh and Vah Naboris - as well as how to find the Master Sword, Hylian Shield and all Captured Memories locations and Great Fairy Fountain locations, while our Shrines locations and Shrine maps hub explains where to find and solve every puzzle room, including dragon locations and Labyrinth solutions. 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.

It's surprisingly easy to get to, with it perched on top of a cliff overlooking the lake.

The area isn't too dangerous to reach on foot, but if you want to make things easy for yourself, head to the Akkala Tower, then look to the south east and you'll clearly see it in the distance, next to some waterfalls.


Simply glide over - or glide over as far as you can to the nearby cliffs - then trot over. No puzzles to enter, just slide your tablet in and down you go.

Once inside, it's one of the game's many Test of Strength challenges, with the prior link having details on how to best defeat it.
