Keh Namut Shrine / Cryonis Trial – BotW

The Keh Namut Shrine is usually the fourth shrine players come across when playing The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and is commonly the final – non-DLC – shrine of The Great Plateau. Let’s see how it’s done!


The Keh Namut Shrine is located in the west of the Great Plateau in the North-West section of Mount Hylia. If you look on your map you can see a small pond in the northern section of the cold mountains – the Keh Namut Shrine is on the southern edge on that lake.

Along the way, you’ll have to deal with an enemy camp right next to the Shrine. They will through boulders made of snow your way as you try to climb the hill so I recommend avoiding those, but besides this you shouldn’t have any problems traveling from the Owa Daim Shrine to Keh Namut Shrine.


The first thing you’ll see when entering the shrine is the guidance stone on your left. From it you will be able to download Cryonis to your Sheikah Slate which will allow you to make a maximum of three pillars of ice from any water source at a time!

Use your newly collected Cryonis to create an ice pillar from the water you are standing next to, this will allow you to climb up to the next platform – the ice pillars are climbable. From here – walk round the corner and use Cryonis to lift the vertical gate blocking your path.

Here you will discover a Guardian Scout which is easily defeat-able. The first thing it will do is fire a quick laser beam towards you, this can be easily blocked with a Cryonis Pillar or a shield. If you’re even more challenging then you can try to parry the laser with your shield to kill the Guardian.

After defeating the Guardian, the path to the monk is clear. You simply need to use a Cryonis pillar to lift a see-saw-like puzzle to access the higher platform. There is a chest across from the higher platform containing a Traveller’s Spear which you can access using – once again – a Cryonis pillar.

After optionally acquiring the Traveller’s Spear from the chest you can walk to the monk and receive the spirit orb to complete the four shrines of the Great Plateau.
