Pumaag Nitae is one of the many shrines located throughout Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and is located within the Lake region. The challenge inside is 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 Pumaag Nitae

This is found within Faron Woods, which is in the southern Lake region at the south of the map.

It's specifically north of the Highland Stable, and east of the Lake Tower. There, you'll see the road from the Lake to the north west meeting with a lake from the Stable to the south.

At this fork, go east a short distance, and the Shrine will be to the north. Head on over - there's no puzzle to solve - and activate it to get the fast travel point.

Thanks to a new update, it's now possible to play Zelda Breath of the Wild in VR. Want help with the main game? Our Zelda: Breath of the Wild walkthrough can help complete Divine Beasts Vah Ruta, Vah Rudiana, Vah Medoh and Vah Naboris and more.
