Playing The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom feels like you’re constantly running into an area you didn’t know existed—even if it’s a region you’ve already visited in Breath of the Wild. Whether you’re walking into a cave, falling into a well, or looking for a gaping hole in the ground, Tears of the Kingdom is literally full of hidden gems.

With that said, some of these hidden areas are more special than others and the word “Discovery!” it’s always more exciting depending on where you end up. Here are 8 hidden locations in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.

8 Lake Hylia Whirlpool Cave

The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Realm Lake Hylia Vortex

Normally, you’d want to avoid a giant vortex, but in this case, you’ll want to dive in head first. Beneath Lake Hylia, you’ll find En-oma’s shrine.

When activated, a beam of light will project into the sky, meaning you’ll need to go above, not below.

If you follow the beam, you will find yourself in the Faron Sky Archipelago. Instead of starting in the water, you can also start in the Faron Sky Archipelago.

Regardless of your choice, you will reach two hidden locations in one quest. Fortunately, other shrines usually don’t require as much travel.

7 Ruins of the Temple of Time

In Breath of the Wild, the Temple of Time was a prominent location, but the temple may look different in Tears of the Kingdom. This is because the Temple of Time is now in heaven and not on earth.

The original Temple of Time pales in comparison to the newer Temple in the Sky. The Temple of Time in the Sky stands tall above everything else in the area and appears to be in relatively good condition.

On the ground, the temple is abandoned, falling apart and playing no role in the plot. But those who found and explored the temple noticed a special Easter egg in the chest.

There you can find the fabric used for your paraglider in the previous game.

6 Golden horse

The Lucky Clover Gazette will offer a quest to investigate a possible sighting of Princess Zelda. During this quest, you can travel to the Snowfield Stable, a snowy area with a special guest.

Penn will speak to the person in the stable who will mention the missing golden horse.

From here you must travel north towards the North Tabantha Snowfield. A golden horse will stand in the snow clearing waiting to be tamed.

Taming a horse is not easy, but the rewards you reap are well worth the effort. When you return to the stables, you will receive the King’s Bridle and the King’s Saddle.

You can then register the horse in the stable, where you will notice that it has four stars in power and speed, three in endurance and two in traction.

5 Gerudo Prison

When you enter the shelter in Gerudo City, you can hear conversations about another human or “voe” who has been imprisoned. Voe is banned from Gerudo City.

However, Link’s entry is a unique exception due to his help in the previous game. Once inside, you may notice a Gerud warrior guarding the door to the cell where the Hylian is being held.

Although you can enter the prison if you commit a crime, such as walking around shirtless or dressing up as a member of the Yiga clan, there is no obvious entry through the secured gate. You can start with a quest that will take you inside and even to the next hidden location.

4 The Gerudo Secret Club

Each region’s domain will offer clothing appropriate for its environment. Zora will give it to you, the Goron tribe and the Rito tribe will sell pieces in their clothing shops, and the Gerudo tribe will make it much harder to find.

And you will quickly learn this when you start the “Riju of Gerudo City” quest.

You’ll need to stock up on heat-resistant containers, but an abundance of hydromelons won’t always cut it in the long run. Geruda’s voe clothing is only accessible after finding the Secret Club shop.

The store is hidden among the above-ground stores and is only accessible through an underground passage. Look for holes in the ground at the market.

Once you’re underground, you’ll have to blast your way through the rock walls, and then you can climb up through the shop floor. The overhead entrance is blocked by a crate and the shop is password protected.

3 Lon Lon Ranch

Although it is kind of out in the open, you may not be aware of its importance. There are several references to previous games in Tears of the Kingdom, one of which is the easter egg location in Ocarina of Time.

Lon Lon Ranch, a dairy farm, still exists in the open world.

Unfortunately, the ranch is in ruins and you’ve probably passed by the area without recognizing what it once was. Fortunately, you can still buy Lon Lon milk at the grocery store, so there are still some remnants of this once-bustling ranch.

2 Forest Coliseum

Do you remember the Yiga clan? The masked, banana-loving soldiers played an important role in Breath of the Wild, but aren’t as prominent in Tears of the Realm. However, they still appear in the game.

There are several colosseums throughout the map, one of which is home to the Yiga clan. The Forest Coliseum is hidden in the forest depths of Great Hyrule.

Once inside, the Yiga Clan will trap you inside and introduce themselves. You’ll then be forced to fight a large, monstrous black Hinox that offers you plenty of loot upon defeat.

1 Evening island

As in the previous game, Eventide Island is a lonely island in the Necluda Sea, off the coast of Cape Kales in southeast Necluda. The easiest way to get here is by fast traveling to Muwo Jeem Sanctuary or Rabella Wetlands Skyview Tower.

Since you can’t swim across, you’ll need to build a vehicle with a Zonai device, such as a parachute or boat, to fly or sail there. Once you’re actually on the island, you’ll be tasked with destroying three monstrous strongholds, which will eventually lead you to the Marari-In Shrine.
