Turakawak Shrine Walkthrough

The puzzle inside Turakawak Shrine in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is called Stacking a Path. The only way to solve this puzzle and move forward is by stacking the boxes atop each other.

1. Once you enter the shrine, go forward to find a meshed box. Pick it up with Ultrahand and place it against the wall.

2. Climb the box and jump on the ledge to reach the next area. This area has one box and a ladder that is a bit high to reach.

3. Pick up the first box and attach it to the top of the second one. Placed the stacked boxes beneath the ladder.

4. As these boxes can be climbed, use them to reach the ladder. 

5. Before climbing the ladder and going forth, return to the first area. Look for a mesh that you can pass through using the Ascend ability.

6. This will take you to a prison cell with a treasure chest. Open it to obtain a Magic Rod.

7. Use Ascend again to leave the cage with the treasure chest. Drop down to your right to reach the ladder where you stacked the boxes earlier.

8. Use Ultrahand to pick up these boxes. Place them near the cage wall and climb on it.

9. Pick up the boxes and stack them on top of the metal block in the same area.

10. Once the structure is finished, pick it up again and place it against the wall to the left.

11. Use your glider to reach the top boxes you can climb. Make your way into the altar room.

12. Interact with Rauru and Sonia’s statues to finish the trial and earn a Light of Blessing as a reward.
