Anedamimik Shrine Location in Zelda: TotK

Anedamimik Shrine is hidden inside Deepback Bay Cave (4193, -2311, 0000) in the East Necluda Region. This cave is to the east of Hateno Beach and southeast of Hateno Village.

The easiest way to reach Deepback Bay cave is by fast traveling to Hateno Ancient Tech Lab and gliding southeast. Follow the Bubbul Rabbit to locate the entrance of the cave.

This cave is home to silver and yellow Horriblins. These are formidable foes, so we recommend carrying powerful weapons and recovery items. Once you clear the cave of Horriblin camp, you will notice Anedamimik Shrine submerged in water. You can’t enter it at this point.

There is a hole in the surface of the cave from where you can drop down. You will notice a Like-Like enemy near the ramp. Climb the ramp and kill the enemy. Behind the enemy you will notice a patch in the floor covered with breakable boulders.

Hit the boulders with bomb arrows (Bomb Flower + Arrows) to drain the water near Anedamimik Shrine. Use Ascend to climb back up and now you can freely enter the shrine.

The exact coordinates for Anedamimik Shrine in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom are (4201, -2317, 0000). Interact with the shrine’s entrance to unlock a fast travel point.
