Ekochiu Shrine Walkthrough

Ekochiu Shrine in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom can be completed using Link’s Recall ability. This shrine does not have any other prerequisites.

When you enter the shrine, you will be presented with a Rise and Fall puzzle that requires you to follow some precise steps to complete it.

1. Stand on the glowing orange switch in the first room. This will make a metallic block go up a railing and return to its original place.

2. Stand on the block and use the Recall ability to make it return to the opposite location.

3. Drop down and proceed to the next area. Here, you will encounter another block falling from the top ledge and drifting on water. Use the Ultrahand ability to pick it up and place it near the right corner. Get on the block and look to your right to find a treasure chest. Open it to obtain a Zonaite Shield.

4. Board the block once more and use the Recall ability. It will take you to the next area. This is where things will turn a bit difficult. Pick up the block and place it near the orange button, not on it.

5. Now drop down to find another metallic block on the right side. Use Ultrahand to pick it up and place it on the contraption in front.

6. Go back and pick up the first block, raising it as high as possible over the orange switch. Drop it, and the launcher will activate, throwing the second block high into the air.

7. Use the Recall ability on the first block (resting on the switch) to make it go back up and run towards the second block. Climb it, wait for the first block to drop, and throw you in the air alongside the second one.

8. Jump away from the block and glide to reach the altar room. Interact with the statues of Sonia and Rauru to complete the trial and get a Light of Blessing as a reward.
