How to get into the Forgotten Temple in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom

To get into The Forgotten Temple in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom, head to the location marked on the map below. The entrance is found on the South side of the structure, at the bottom of the valley. This is marked between the Rowan Plain and South Tabantha Snowfield.

Land at the bottom of the valley on the South side of The Forgotten Temple structure. You will find a packhorse sitting alone near the entrance. Just climb the wall ahead of you and you can find a hot air baloon with a character sitting next to it. This is around halfway up the structure.

From here it's just a case of pushing through each of the large rooms of the temple. There are enemies here, and a lot of climbing to be done. Ascend is your best friend to reach the end of the temple quickly. A short way in, you'll be able to activate the Mayausiy Shrine as a Fast Travel point.

Near the shrine, you will find Impa, who will direct you towards the final room. It's here where you'll learn the locations of all Dragon Tears, which is a quest well worth mainlining as soon as possible. Not only does it feature some excellent story cutscenes, there's also a legendary reward waiting at the end of it all.
