How To Unlock Ulri Mountain Skyview Tower In Zelda: Tears Of The Kingdom

Take down the thief Aerocuda to retrieve the Ulri Mountain Skyview Tower's console.

Skyview Towers in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom keep evolving, and each one presents Link with a new challenge. Ulri Mountain Skyview Tower is on the easier side of things as it doesn’t require you to show either brain or brawn in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. The only objective of this Skyview Tower is to check how good you are at shooting moving objects with arrows.

But this is not what we have in mind. We will also teach you to create one of the best-fused arrows in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom and how to use it to hit moving objects without worrying about your aim. So, without further ado, let’s shoot some flying monsters.

Ulri Mountain Skyview Tower Location in Zelda: TotK

Ulri Mountain Skyview Tower is in the Akkala region of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. It is to the Northeast of Central Hyrule and east of Eldin Region.

The Ulri Mountain Skyview Tower is to the Northeast of Kanalet Ridge and South of Shadow Pass. Its coordinates on the map are (3494, 2020, 0188).

This area is relatively calm, and you can glide East from the Mayachideg shrine to reach the Ulri Mountain Skyview Tower. Beware of a Silver Mobiln in its path, as it can easily kill you with one hit. There are no prerequisites to reach this Skyview Tower, and you don’t need any specific outfit to brace for the weather of the Akkala region.

How to Activate the Ulri Mountain Skyview Tower

Upon reaching the Ulri Mountain Skyview Tower in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, you will discover that the console to activate the tower is missing. You will notice Sawson near the left side of the Skyview Tower’s entrance.

Talk to him, and he will reveal the purpose of his visit. Sawson was sent here to fix the console, but a flying monster (yellow Aerocuda) snatched it from him.

Sawson will guide you toward the aforementioned Aerocuda and request that you take it down to retrieve the tower’s console. These yellow Aerocudas can easily be killed with one perfect shot with the arrows.

1. Wait near Sawson for the monster to arrive at the Ulri Mountain Skyview Tower again.

2. Jump from the platform and take out your bow to slow the time while aiming. Shoot the Aerocuda and run towards where its body fell on the ground.


If you have difficulty targeting the Aerocuda, combine your arrows with Keese Eyeballs (ZR and D-pad up). This will create a Homing Arrow, allowing you to take down the yellow Aerocuda even without perfect aim.

3. Search the area with Ultrahand ability to find the Ulri Mountain Skyview Tower’s console.

4. Bring it back to the Ulri tower, and Sawson will fix it during a cutscene. After the cutscene, interact with the console to activate the tower and unlock a fast travel point.

5. Get on the launchpad and be thrown into the sky to scan the map of surrounding areas. Use your glider to make your way back to the ground safely.

6. You can visit the Ulri Mountain Skyview Tower anytime in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom and access the Akkala Sky Archipelago.
