Ze Kasho Shrine / Ze Kasho Apparatus – BotW

In my opinion, the Ze Kasho Shrine is the most annoying Shrine in the entirety of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Here’s how to complete it!


The Ze Kasho Shrine is the resident Shrine of the South Akkala Stable, to the west of the Akkala Tower. You can easily reach the South Akkala Stable and the Ze Kasho Shrine by using a Wind Bomb from the Akkala Tower. If you’re unsure how to use a Wind Bomb, you can use our Guide to Wind Bombs (BotW)!

Walkthrough of Ze Kasho Shrine

The Ze Kasho Shrine has three main puzzles. Upon entering the Shrine, you’ll see the first puzzle; walk over to the Apparatus which controls the platform ahead of you. Move the platform to the left, then ahead, then to the left ahead to clear a path onward.

In the next room, you’ll see a crystal, two rotating platforms, the path, four lasers, a chest, a rotation platform, and the exit. When you hit the crystal, the two rotating platforms will act as shields to protect the path from the lasers. There are two ways to reach the other side:

  1. Hit the crystal and run as fast as you can to the other side of the path. If you need to, you can use a bow and arrow to shoot the crystal again half way for more time.
  2. Alternatively, you can face parallel to the laser and open your shield to block them; this is somewhat easier but will use up quite a bit of your shield’s durability.

OPTIONAL Chest: On the other side of the room, the chest on the higher platform contains a Silverscale Spear. I personally don’t recommend getting it cause it takes more effort than what it’s worth, but if you’d like it, here’s how. There’s a rotation platform beneath the exit that also activates with the crystal, shoot the crystal with an arrow and jump onto the platform. Then, shoot it again and jump as high as possible and glide over to the chest. I don’t recommend it but you can if you want.

Finally, you’ve reached the most annoying puzzle in the entire game. Walk through to the next room and go to the left, examine the Apparatus. In this puzzle, you’ll need to move the platform and move all three Sheikah Orbs onto the Pressure Plates. This is complicated as you’ll need to get them there at the same time which is pretty difficult.

Once you have all three orbs done, walk through the now-open gate and acquire the Spirit Orb from the Shrine’s Monk!
