Zelda: Tears Of The Kingdom Geoglyph and Dragon’s Tears Locations

Find the Dragon's Tears hidden in the Geoglyphs across the Hyrule Land to visit the past.

Like captured memories of Breath of The Wild, Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom also has players running around and finding lost memories from the Geoglyphs. This time, however, the flashback memories are collected from pools of Dragon’s Tears. These tears are puddles of water found within Geoglyphs on the ground, which can only be seen clearly from the sky.

There are several tear-shaped designs in these Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom Geoglyphs, but you need to find the one that looks filled. This is where there is an actual puddle on the ground created by the Dragon’s Tears. The moment you examine them, a cutscene will start.

There are 12 Dragon’s Tears out of which you need to find 11 by exploring the map. The 12th Dragon’s Tear will reveal itself once you find all the other 11 Dragon Tears. Although it can be a bit tricky to find the exact location of the Geoglyphs in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, the real challenge starts when you must find the Dragon’s Tear in a huge drawing.

In the guide below we will mention the location and coordinates of each Dragon Tear to make it simple for you so, you don’t get lost when finding these Geoglyphs along with the Dragon Tears.

Start the Impa and the Geoglyphs quest

It all starts when you complete the tutorial and receive your paraglider, you will be directed to northwest of Lookout Landing, near Serenne Stable where you will find Impa.

This area is called North Hyrule Plain (-1311, 0821, 0095), and it is to the Northeast of Serenne Stable and east of Sinakawak Shrine. Once you reach this location, talk to Lady Impa to start Impa and the Geoglyphs quest.

She will ask you to build a hot air balloon. All the materials are present right there. Simply attach a balloon to the base with Ultrahand and then place some logs on the table.

Use a fire arrow to burn the logs. You can also put your wooden weapon on fire with the help of a nearby campfire. Once the balloon gains enough height, Impa will implore you to dive down to locate the first dragon tear.

Once you jump from the hot air balloon, you will notice a geoglyph depicting Rauru. If you look closely with your camera, you will notice Rauru’s eyes are shaped like tears. His left eye is colored as compared to the other one.

Glide to safely reach Rauru’s Eye (-1411, 0967, 0124) and interact with a small puddle to start the cutscene.

Continue the Impa and the Geoglyphs Quest

Before moving on to the next geoglyph location, you need to find Impa inside the Forgotten Temple to continue her quest. This temple is inside a ravine to the North of Tabantha Tundra.

The only entrance to the Forgotten Temple (-1425 2262, -0035) is through a hole in the wall. This area is teeming with enemies, and you must progress until the end to locate Impa.

Talk to Cado near the entrance and proceed until you reach the Mayausiy Shrine. Lady Impa is standing right next to it. Talk to her to proceed with the quest and enter the inner sanctum to locate the Hyrule’s map with tears locations marked distinctly.

Map of All Dragon Tears and Geoglyphs

We have a detailed map of all the geoglyphs and dragon tears scattered across the Hyrule surface. These are all outlined and numbered accordingly for your ease of use.

While you can locate the first 11 Dragon Tears in any order you want, we recommend that you consult our map to locate them to unlock the memories in perfect order.

Tips to locate Dragon Tears inside Geoglyphs

Geoglyphs are huge and cover a large area of the land surface. Locating a single puddle of water can be really daunting and off-putting. While the geoglyphs can be located from a distance, the same can’t be said for the Tears locations inside them. 

To make your life easier, we have mentioned the exact coordinates of each Dragon Tear above. If you want to locate them yourselves, you can use the following tips.

1. Always use the nearby Skyview Tower to get airborne and reach the Geoglyph from above. It is extremely important to see the whole Geoglyph as some are spread across mountains and can’t be viewed whole from the ground.

2. The water puddles that hold the tear are shaped like water droplets. Open your camera mid-air and locate the water droplet shapes on each Geoglyph.

3. The puddle holding the tear is colored differently from the rest. Other droplet shapes have a white boundary with green inside. The droplet shape with the tear appears to be colored white, just like the border (one uniform color).

4. Nighttime is the best time to locate the Geoglyphs. Some of them appear blurry during the day, and sunlight makes their visibility even worse.

5. There are 11 geoglyphs and 12 Dragon Tears. The last one won’t appear until you locate the first 11.

6. You can find Dragon Tears in any order you want. The memories they unlock will appear in the Adventure Log, which you can view as many times as you want.

7. Stack up on stamina-restoring foods/elixirs, and increase your stamina wheels by completing shrines.

8. Use the Glide Armor set to cover long distances and control your movement precisely in the air.

9. If the Geoglyph is far away from the Skyview Tower, you can rest on the Sky Islands to replenish your stamina and continue again.
