Far Cry Primal Lost Caves are interesting areas in the game that content two important collectibles: Daysha Hands and Cave Paintings. If you wish to find all of these, you’ll have to explore all 22 caves in the land of Oros.
There are primarily two types of caves to be found: navigational caves with barely any enemy, and caves occupied by rival tribes like Izila and Udam.
Although some caves are occupied by tribesmen, it’s entirely possible (and recommended) to avoid confrontation in these claustrophobic environments through alternative routes and other means.
Make sure you have the grappling claw as well as plenty of antidote whenever you decide to explore a cave.
Far Cry Primal Lost Caves Location, Daysha Hands, Cave Paintings
Far Cry Primal Lost Caves are littered with clues of what to do next. There are breakable walls, burnable thorns/brushes/wood, breakable icicles, and climbable grapple points to take use of.
Clues such as arrows and footprints can be revealed using Hunter’s Vision to make the navigation through the caves easier.
Cave of Bones
The Cave of Bones is located to the far north on the west side of the wastes next to Totems of the Old Ones. Udam enemies occupy the cave, but they don’t need to be fought as there’s a pathway immediately to the right of the entrance that can be climbed.
This pathway bypasses the enemies if you follow along the narrow ledges to the backside of the cave.
You can even exit the cave from the same way. The main room of the cave can be accessed from this pathway. Follow the north corridor after doing so, and at the very back of the cave you’ll find the Daysha Hand on a narrow bridge above a fire.
You can access the Cave Painting by using the same bypass route from the entrance of the cave. Follow the path straight until you reach a large room. To the right are a few pots, and the wall next to them has a painting on it.
Cave of Hasari
There are two entrances to this cave. The type of animals in this cave can be random, and sometimes a Cave Bear will also spawn here.
Enter through the upper cave entrance and turn left immediately. Burn down the thorns on the left and walk through the small corridor. At the end of the corridor you’ll find the Daysha Hand.
For the Cave Painting, you’ll need to find the big room closest to the lower entrance of the cave. Stick with the right wall and you’ll spot a group of thorns in a corner. Burn them down to access the Cave Painting.
There’s a weak wall in the first room that can be destroyed if you entered from the upper entrance of the cave.
Cave of Strength
This complex cave is located at Twisted Path Climb. You should search for red footprints with Hunter Vision that lead to collectibles in the cave and spot fireflies which indicate the right direction and important locations in-case you are lost.
There are no enemies in this cave, but you can lose your way easily. It’s all about navigation. The first room includes platforms in the center on the column with the ledges on the outside.
Head up to the tunnel above with some running jumps. Search for footprints here.
You’ll eventually come across an intersection blocked by a stone in the middle, thorns on the left, and a ledge to the right. Burn the thorns to reveal a grappling point, and use it to swing to the ledge ahead.
The cave painting should be located here. You’ll need to hold the rope at a perfect height to get this right. Eventually, you’ll come to a big cavern with water around a large column.
Jump over to the platform on the left wall and burn the thorns that block the southeastern route. Set them on fire, then come back to this large room’s entrance.
There are more thorns to the right; clear them and swing to the next platform, then jump to the far corner.

The upper level of this cavern has the Daysha Hand.
Cave of Sun Walkers
This cave is a part of the Tribal Clashes, so you may have explored it beforehand as well.
The cave will still be occupied by Izila tribesmen, but they can be bypassed altogether through a secondary stealth entrance found on the top of the cave to the east.

Stay to the right and continue moving forward. Climb the ledge and bust the weak wall here. At the end of this hall you’ll find the Daysha Hand. Head back to the cavern, and turn right immediately after going down the ledge.
