Ree Dahee Shrine / Timing is critical – BotW

Ree Dahee Shrine is one of the first shrines players encounter after leaving the Great Plateau in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, let’s see how to complete it!


The Ree Dahee Shrine is located to the east of the Great Plateau and Dueling Peaks Tower; it is directly beneath the Dueling Peaks themselves. Walking east, there is a large ledge that stretches all along the interior of the mountain to your left.

Around the center of this ledge is the shrine, you should be able to climb it with one wheel of stamina, but if not you can teleport to the Dueling Peaks Tower and paraglide down to the ledge.

Be careful as the shrine is surrounded by Lizalfos and Octorcs which live in the nearby waters, they will shoot you so watch out for them and stay alive. There’s no point getting to the shrine if you’re dead by your arrival.

Upon entering the Ree Dahee Shrine, the entirety of all the puzzles will be visible. You will have even have sight of the monk situated at the end of the shrine. All three of the puzzles in the shrine follow a similar outline. Stand on a pressure plate, move the rolling orb, stand on the moving platform; however, they get harder as you progress.

Puzzle 1

The first thing you need to do is simple, simply, stand on the pressure plate located directly ahead of you; this action will trigger the platform ahead of you to fall diagonally and cause the orb to roll into the hole it needs to; this will initiate the movement of a moving platform to come to you. Stand on the platform to traverse to the next puzzle.

Puzzle 2

On the second puzzle, you need to released the pressure plate at just the right moment so the orb follows the correct path as it need to roll right before heading left to its hole. Make sure to stand on the moving platform whilst the orb is rolling since it will leave as soon as the orb hits its destination.

Puzzle 3

The third puzzle entails a couple more steps. The first thing you need to do is – once again – stand on the pressure plate so the orb rolls, but this time you need to step off at just the right moment so the orb flies from the platform to the destination. Stand on the platform and go to the monk! Done!

Except, not quite! There is a chest to the top left section of this puzzle and is inaccessible right now. If you were diligent enough, you could have noticed that when the platform is affected by the pressure plate, it is high enough to reach the chest. This is precisely how we will reach it! There are two methods to acquiring the contents of the chest: the intended way and the easy way.

  • The intended way is to utilize the moving platform to reach the metal barrels to the right of the monk. Magnesis one of the barrels and bring it back to the pressure plate; place it on top. With the plate kept down, you can walk along the platform and reach the chest.
  • Or, you can just do it the easy way. Step on the pressure plate and wait for the moving platform to have just reached you, stasis the plate and jump on the platform. Walk across the now diagonal platform to reach the chest!

Open the chest to acquire the Climber’s Bandana. This bandana will permit you to travel faster as you climb up anything that is climbable, handy!

Glide to the monk or use the ladder next to the barrels if you don’t want to take a risk and obtain the spirit orb!
