How To Unlock Mount Lanayru Skyview Tower In Zelda: Tears Of The Kingdom

Brace the snowstorms of Lanayru region to activate the Mount Lanayru Skyview Tower.

Similar to many other open-world games, Skyview Towers in Zelda: TotK act as fast travel points and reveal portions of the map in their surroundings. The Mount Lanayru Skyview Tower in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is one such tower that unlocks the map for the Lanayru region.

Like other Skyview Towers, the Mount Lanayru Skyview Tower in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom also requires players to gain access to the interior of the tower and activate it before it will reveal the map. Once the tower has been unlocked, it can also be used to fly up to the Sky Islands.

Mount Lanayru Skyview Tower Location in Zelda: TotK

Mount Lanayru Skyview Tower is found on the peak of Mount Lanayru in Zelda: tears of the Kingdom. You need to get to the highest point on Mount Lanayru, the exact coordinates being (3846, -1306, 0539) to locate this tower.

It is to the Southeast of Central Hyrule and Northeast of the Necluda region. Unlike some other towers, activating Mount Lanayru Skyview Tower does not involve a puzzle.

However, getting to the tower itself is the challenging part. Since the tower is in a remote location, you will have to scale the entire mountain. As this tower is in an extremely cold area, we recommend that you purchase and equip the Snowquill armor. Brewing elixirs with cold resistance or cooking spicy meals is another good option.

How to Activate the Mount Lanayru Skyview Tower

Mount Lanayru Skyview Tower in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom has nothing blocking access to the tower. You can activate it simply as soon as you get to the tower, but getting to it is not easy.

First of all, you need to be able to resist the cold temperature of the mountain. Make sure to eat spicy food, bring some of it with you, and wear armor sets that provide resistance against cold.

Next, you can try increasing your stamina before attempting to scale the mountain. Either upgrade your total stamina or use food items that grant temporary stamina buffs. Climbing the mountain will drain a lot of your stamina, so be prepared.

There are two methods of climbing Mount Lanayru. The first and basic method is to climb the mountain. In between, you will find small ledges that allow you to stand and replenish your stamina.

All you need to do is watch out for these and plan your route accordingly. Planning ensures you don’t fall in the middle of your climb.

Next, time blocks fall a lot of time near Mount Lanayru. You can use them to get to the top quickly and easily. Simply find a time block (they are characterized by a green hue around them), get on it, and then use the Recall ability.

This will make the time block go back high in the air from where you can glide to reach Mount Lanayru Skyview Tower in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.

Once you get to Mount Lanayru Skyview Tower, simply interact with the console here to activate the tower and unlock a fast travel point. Use its launch pad to get airborne and unlock the map for the Lanayru Region.

This will complete the Mount Lanayru Skyview Tower in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. You can visit this tower anytime to access Lanayru Sky Archipelago.
