How to Activate the Eldin Canyon Skyview Tower

It will be locked when you arrive at the Eldin Canyon Skyview Tower. Some stone fell on it, knocking its top off. This resulted in the tower’s door getting jammed. An NPC Sawson standing by the tower’s door will provide this invaluable information.

Sawson will give a hint on how to unlock the Eldin Canyon Skyview Tower in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. You need to enter it through the opening on its top and activate the switch.

1. The Eldin Skyview Tower is too high to climb, so the only way to reach it is to use the time blocks.

2. Go to the right side of the tower and look up in the sky to locate a time block falling from the sky. They are marked by a distinct green hue originating from them.

3. Glide to reach the time block (its location may vary for you) and use the Recall ability on it.

4. Climb the block and let it go as high as possible. Turn off Recall and jump from the time block.

5. Glide towards the Eldin Canyon Skyview Tower’s top and enter it through the opening.

6. Glide down to reach the floor and interact with the control panel to activate the tower. This will also unlock the front door.

7. Sawson will thank you for fixing the tower and will leave the area. The map of Eldin Canyon will be unlocked, and now you can use this tower to navigate the Eldin Sky region
