How To Complete Mayanas Shrine In Zelda: Tears Of The Kingdom

Use ice as a sled to cross the thorny sections of Mayanas Shrine and earn its blessing.

Mayanas Shrine in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom requires players to complete a triathlon of challenges to acquire its blessing. Finding the shrine, unlocking it with green crystal, and solving its puzzle make an unholy trinity of challenges.

Fret not, as this is where we come in. We will help you locate the Mayanas shrine in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom but also help you find its green crystal with elaborate steps. We will also ensure you collect this shrine’s only treasure chest by combining text and a visual guide.

Mayanas Shrine Location in Zelda: TotK

Mayanas Shrine is part of the South Lanayru Sky Archipelago. It is far away, and the only way to reach it is by making various pit stops at sky islands and using flying vehicles.

1. Start from Mount Lanayru Skyview Tower and use it to get airborne.

2. Turn west and start gliding towards the sky island. You will need at least two stamina bars to glide there.

3. Pick up a rocket and attach it to a zonai flying device.

4. Get on the zonai device and use the Steering Stick to activate it. The rocket will take you high in the sky.

5. Keep flying towards the next island with another flying device present on it. You will need it as your current vehicle won’t reach the island housing at the Mayanas Shrine.

6. Take the second vehicle and drive it all the way to Mayanas Shrine’s entrance (4610, -0949, 1793). Interact with it to unlock a fast travel point.

Mayanas Shrine Walkthrough

Mayanas Shrine in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom belongs to the crystal shrine category. This means you can only make it appear and enter it once you find and return its life crystal.

Interacting with the shrine will start The South Lanayru Sky Crystal shrine quest.

1. Take a flying device (4668, -0918, 1790) from the island housing the shrine.

2. Follow the green light to reach the top of the island west of the shrine.

3. The crystal is inside a cave whose entrance is covered with vines.

4. To pass the vines, you will need a sword or fire weapon. We recommend using Fire Arrows (Arrows + Fire Fruit).

5. Inside the cave, there is a zonai wing device. With the help of Ultrahand, attach a couple of fans to it.

6. Attach a battery and steering stick to your newly crafted wing vehicle.

7. Pick up the Green Crystal and attach it to the wing device.

8. With the help of Ultrahand, take the vehicle out of the cave and make it go as high as possible.

9. Return the vehicle to you and climb it. Now, use the Recall ability to return it to the highest point.

10. Once you are at the highest point, turn off Recall and control the vehicle with the steering stick. All that is left is now to reach the shrine’s entrance.

11. Once you reach the island with the shrine, remove the crystal from the wing device and return it to the shrine’s entrance.

12. This will complete The South Lanayru Sky Crystal shrine quest, and the shrine will appear.

Things don’t end here. The trial presented by the Mayanas Shrine in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is called The Ice Guides You. The objective of this trial is to create ice blocks to proceed forward.

1. From the entrance, go straight and pick up some Ice Fruits from near a small pond.

2. Throw the Ice Fruit (hold the R button and D-Pad UP) in water to create an Ice block.

3. Attach a metal plank to the top of the ice block (refer to the picture above).

4. Now place this structure on the ramp and let it go all the way down to hit the orange target circle. With ice, this block will effortlessly glide across the thorny part and achieve the goal.

5. Don’t interact with the statues in the next room yet. Go straight and pick up a metal plank from the left.

6. Use your Ultrahand ability to move this plank as far as possible and return it to its original position.

7. Glide to reach the orange target circle.

8. Use the Recall ability to make the metal plan return to its farthest position near the orange target ring.

9. Grab the metal plank with Ultrahand and raise it as high as possible. Drop the plank on the orange target ring to open the door to the treasure chest.

10. Glide to reach the stairs in front of you. Climb all the way back up and open the treasure chest to obtain a Mighty Zonaite Shield.

11. Interact with Rauru and Sonia’s statues to complete the Mayanas Shrine in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom and collect a Light of Blessing as the reward.


You can use the four Lights of Blessing at any Goddess statue to either increase your stamina or health.
