Glide through low gravity to take down your enemies in Yansamin Shrine.

Yansamin Shrine in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom offers two challenges to the players: to locate it and defeat its construct guardians.

Defeating the construct enemies in the Yansamin Shrine of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is not as easy as the other combat shrines. They offer an adequate challenge in the form of two Captain Constructs and are aided by the low gravity of the arena. However, finding this shrine is the real task here.

In our detailed step-by-step guide below, we will teach you how to reach Zonaite Forge Island, overcome its traps, access this shrine, and solve its trial.

Yansamin Shrine Location in Zelda: TotK

Yansamin Shrine is hidden inside Zonaite Forge Island on the East Necluda Sky Archipelago. Its exact coordinates are (2350, -1782, 1475).

However, there is no simple way to reach Yansamin Shrine in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. The only way to access the Zonaite Forge Island is by finding and equipping Zora Armor. The next prerequisite is that you must use Tulin’s Gust ability to reach this island safely.

1. Once you have both items, proceed to the position marked on the map above. This area is between the Phalian Heights and the Peak of Awakening. You will notice a large waterfall here (2775, -1369, 0258) reaching as high as the sky above.

2. Equip Zora Armor and glide towards the waterfall.

3. It will allow you to swim upward against the water current. Once you reach all the way to the top, go straight forward and defeat a construct enemy on a zonai hover platform.

4. Use Ultrahand to pick up a rocket and attach it to the platform. Hit the rocket to make the platform go high in the air.

5. Once you reach the required height, jump from the platform and glide forward. Use Tulin’s Gust ability to reach Zonaite Forge Island.

6. Interact with the zonai switch on the island to activate a mechanism. You will notice some large areas with hot air streams blowing upward.

7. Climb the platforms and use your glider to reach the top of the Zonaite Forge Island.

8. You will need to use multiple hot air streams to make the journey. We recommend that you rest in between to restore your stamina.

9. Once you reach the central platform on top, drop down from a massive hole in its floor.

10. This section is full of lasers and hitting them will make you restart from the beginning of the hole. Take your time and use the Glide armor set for better control in the air. Once you reach the bottom, turn left to find Yansamin Shrine in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.

Interact with its entrance to unlock a fast travel point.
