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

Acquire and learn to control the Ultrahand ability in Ukouh Shrine.

The Ukouh Shrine is the first of three Shrines you need to solve as part of The Closed Door objective of the first quest, Find Princess Zelda, in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.

While Shrines can easily be found in the world of Hyrule, this is before you receive the Fast Travel ability. Therefore, you must explore the map thoroughly to find the Shrines.

Here is how you can reach and solve the Ukouh Shrine to get the Ultrahand ability in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.

Do go through our TotK all shrines guide for the other remaining shrines in Tears of the Kingdom.

Ukouh Shrine Location in Zelda: TotK

The Ukouh Shrine is perhaps the easiest Shrine to find in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, as it is situated just outside the Temple of Time. Its exact coordinates are (0274, -0913, 1460).

To reach the shrine, you must drop down on the stone temple’s left side and reach the mountain’s top. This is the first shrine of the Great Sky Island, where you will receive the Ultrahand ability.

Ukouh Shrine Walkthrough

The puzzle presented by Ukouh Shrine in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is called The Ability to Create. This trial teaches you the mechanics of Ultrahand ability. You will learn how to pick up, rotate, attach, and unstick items with this ability to create useful structures.

1. Pick up the plank near the shrine’s entrance and place it over the gap. With this makeshift bridge, cross the gap.

2. In the next area, pick up a metal plank and rotate it to match the shape of a plank lying on the floor.

3. Attach both planks at the end to create a long bridge.

4. Pick up the bridge and place it over the gap. Cross the gap to reach the next and final area.

5. Pick up a plank and lay it flat on the surface.

6. Pick up a hook and attach it to one end of the plank.

7. Unstick another hook (grab with Ultrahand and wiggle the right analog stick) and attach it to the other end of the plank. Make sure the direction of both hooks is the same.

8. Place the hooks on the rail and jump to get on the plank. It will take you all the way down to the Altar Room.

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

The Ukouh Shrine is only one of three Shrines you must solve for the Closed-Door quest. The next one will be the In-Isa Shrine in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.
