Nouda Shrine Location in Zelda: TotK

Nouda Shrine is inside Kopeeki Drifts cave, south of Pikida Stonegrove Skyview Tower. The entrance of this cave (-2405, 2288, 0171) is inside a ravine southwest of Tabantha Tundra.

The exact coordinates of the Nouda Shrine in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom are (-2317, 2201 0173), and the nearest stable is Wetland Stable to the east.

1. From the cave’s entrance, go straight to find a freezing lake. There is no way to cross it unless you have a lot of Ice Fruits.

2. Turn right to enter another tunnel, where you will notice an Ice-Like enemy shooting ice balls in a small pond.

3. Pick up an ice block and fuse it with your weapon.

4. Return to the lake and start swinging your weapon to create ice blocks in the water.

5. Carefully step on the ice blocks and create new ones to move forward.

6. Keep repeating this process until you reach the other end of the lake where Nouda Shrine is.

7. Interact with the Shrine’s entrance to unlock a fast travel point and enter it.
