Kema Kosassa is one of the many Shrines located throughout Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The challenge inside is a Test of Strength Shrine, 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 Kema Kosassa

The Kema Kosassa Shrine is located within the south west Gerudo region. Though you'd expect this to be in a desert, you'll be exploring the snow-covered Gerudo Highlands to reach it.

Want more help? 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 specifically on the Risoka Snowfield at the foot of Mount Agaat, on the north west side of the region. If you fast travel to Gerudo Tower, you can get decent elevation to glide some distance to the north west, cutting out some of the journey.

Prepare for a small climb, and make sure you have level on cold resistance, and you'll see the Shrine at the bottom of a cliff. There's no puzzle to gain access - just slide the tablet in and go.

Once inside, it's one of the game's many Test of Strength challenges - specifically against the hardest kind of Guardian Scout. As such you'll want high level armour and health to tackle it - the prior link also has details on how to best defeat it.

While you're here, here are other Shrines within this region:
