Zelda: Tears Of The Kingdom Lake Hylia Crystal Shrine Quest Guide

The Lake Hylia Crystal Shrine Quest in Tears of the Kingdom is amongst the prerequisites required to unlock the En-Oma Shrine.

Some Shrines like the En-Oma Shrine require you to complete a crystal shrine quest before you can enter the particular shrine in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.

In this case, the quest is called “The Lake Hylia Crystal”, and it has a couple of prerequisites. Link needs to find and activate Popla Hills Skyview Tower and complete the “Tulin of Rito Village” main quest before attempting this shrine quest.

We have detailed guides for both. Once you have all of the prerequisites, you can follow this guide to complete “The Lake Hylia Crystal” shrine quest in Tears of the Kingdom without breaking a sweat.

How to start the Lake Hylia Crystal Shrine quest

Location of Lake Hylia Whirlpool Marked On the Map

Starting the Lake Hylia Crystal quest is going to be a child’s play. Inside The Lake Hylia Whirpool Cave, you will find the En-Oma Shrine.

You will notice that it isn’t like other shrines. That is because it hasn’t been activated yet. Approach the shrine and simply interact with it. This should do the trick.

We have marked the precise location of the whirlpool on the map given above. It is in the Faron region and its exact location is to the West of Farosh Hills and East of Hylia Island.

To enter Lake Hylia Cave, simply jump into the lake and let the whirlpool do the rest. You will instantly be sucked inside when you are in close proximity. Inside the cave, you will find the En-Oma Shrine. Interacting with it will trigger the quest.
