The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom Skyview Tower Locations
Once you’re “done” with Great Sky Island and plunge into Hyrule from the skies, you’ll—spoiler alert—be tasked to find Zelda, who has gone missing after the events that happened. The world in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is enormous, even bigger than Breath of the Wild. Thankfully, there are Skyview Towers littered throughout the map. To unlock the towers you’ll find in Breath of the Wild, you’ll need to solve a puzzle or a predicament.
There are fifteen Skyview Towers in total for you to go to, and if you’re wondering where to find all of them, our guide will point you in the right direction. Here are all the locations of the towers and how you can unlock them.
Lookout Landing Skyview Tower
The Lookout Landing Skyview Tower is probably the first of the fifteen towers you’ll unlock if you follow the main story closely (unless you tend to wander off). This is the simplest to get out of the bunch since you won’t have to go through any obstacles to access it.
To unlock the Lookout Landing Skyview Tower, simply progress through “The Crisis at Hyrule Castle” questline, and the game will automatically update itself with the necessary steps for you to take. I know it’s easy to get side-tracked by the sheer amount of stuff you can do in Tears of the Kingdom, but at the very least, tackle this part of the story first before exploring the rest of Hyrule. That way, you can see Central Hyrule’s map clearly.
Hyrule Field Skyview Tower
Located southwest of Hyrule Field, the Hyrule Field Skyview Tower is similar to the Lookout Landing Skyview Tower, where there are no unlock requirements. Instead, it’s guarded by a group of Bokoblins plus a Boss Bokoblin to complete the package. To get to this area, go south of Lookout Landing.
Unlocking this Skyview Tower is simple: eradicate the enemy settlement found in the area. You’ll be in for a tough fight if you’re not geared up yet, but there are many tools at your disposal in TotK. Plus, it’s the perfect opportunity to test your new skills and learn how to use your powers on large enemy groups. Whether you sneak into the Bokoblin’s base and ambush them or run straight for the tower without looking back, the choice is yours on how you want to tackle the problem.
Lindor’s Brow Skyview Tower
Located northwest of Lookout Landing and northeast of Hyrule Ridge, Lindor’s Brow Skyview Tower is where you’ll stumble upon if you plan to head to Rito Village on foot. Lindor’s Brow can be found in the middle of the lake north of New Serenne Stable.
Since a lake surrounds the tower and is on a raised platform, getting there can be a hassle—unless you have enough stamina. Then again, you must also consider that you have to swim there, so there’s no way for you to get to the tower through sheer willpower. But hey—you’ve got new tools to play with now, and you can use those to conjure up a myriad of ways to get to the top.
One solution you can do is build an extremely long bridge to get across the lake using Ultrahand. The materials are already near the area, and you don’t need to attach the pieces perfectly; you just have to make the bridge long enough. Once you’re done gluing the boards or logs, place them down and walk up to the tower.
Thyphlo Ruins Skyview Tower
The Thyphlo Ruins Skyview Tower can be found north of the Great Hyrule Forest and west of the Elden Mountains. I recommend hopping on a vantage point around the swamp water unless you want Link to drown in a matter of seconds. Find Billson and talk to him once you’ve plopped down on the ground near the tower.
Billson will say there’s something wrong with the device since it won’t activate like the other towers, but it seems fine when you look at the structure. However, upon closer inspection, you’ll find a massive floating platform blocking the tower’s top part. Color me surprised—the Skyview Towers are actually solar-powered?
To solve the puzzle, make your way to the top of the tower and move the floating platform out of the way using the tools at your disposal. You’ll find two rockets at another platform near you, which you can stick to either side of the floating blockage. Activate them to move the platform off the tower’s roof and jump back down the shaft to reach the terminal.
Rospro Pass Skyview Tower
If you’re already well on your way to Rito Village, stop by and activate the Rospro Pass Skyview Tower southwest of the Hebra Mountains, as it makes for an excellent fast travel point for the area. Plus, it’s the perfect way to access the Rito Village.
Gaining access to the Rospro Pass Skyview is as straightforward as it gets. Thorns surround this tower, so you can’t jump or climb over them. Instead, you’ll need to throw some Fire Fruit at the vines to make them burn. If you don’t have any Fire Fruit, you can use plenty of materials and resources to make fire, including the Bomb Flower (getting Ocarina of Time flashbacks yet?). Once all the thorns have been burned, enter the tower and activate the terminal.
Pikida Stonegrove Skyview Tower
Since we’re already on the topic of Hebra, why not activate the Pikida Stonegrove Skyview Tower after you’re done with Rospro Pass? This one’s northeast of the Rito Village, between the Tabantha Tundra and Hebra Mountains.
The Pikida Stonegrow Skyview Tower is in the harshest regions of Tabantha and Hebra, so while it has no unlock requirements, you’ll need lots of food to keep you warm or the necessary gear. You can either equip the Snowquill Set or cook dishes using Spicy Peppers. Since climbing to the surrounding surface can take a toll on your stamina, you can prepare some stamina elixirs beforehand. If you’re too lazy to climb to the top, you can attempt to fix the bridge using Ultrahand or one of your fancy Zonai devices.
Sahasra Slope Skyview Tower
The Sahasra Slope Skyview Tower can be found just north of West Necluda and southeast of Hyrule Field, which is close to Kakariko Village. Before heading to this tower, bring lots of bombs and hammers (forged from Fuse) with you since you won’t be able to enter it from the front.
You’ll notice it’s locked once you arrive at the tower’s front. Talk to Billson, who’s also trying to get inside, and he’ll mention some tasty mushrooms in the nearby caves under the tower. There are two entrances to the cave, and you’ll need to make your way inside it by either bashing the stone walls with your hammer or using bombs. When you’re done dealing with the Horriblins inside the cave, find the perfect spot underneath (after moving the boulder to reveal an opening) the tower itself and use your Ascend skill to pop into the terminal.
Popla Foothills Skyview Tower
Since you’re already in the West Necluda area after activating the Sahashra Slope Skyview Tower, go to the northeast of Lake Hylia, and you’ll find the Popla Foothills Skyview Tower. There’s no power going to this tower, so you’ll have to restore it somehow.
Go to the Popla Foothills North Well, just outside the tower, and drop down to find someone crying to help. This is where you’ll find Elmerson, who says he fell into a trap and is now locked inside. To get him out, find a cave nearby and backtrack to the other side to free them. Once you rescue Elmerson and find the switch in doing so, you can activate the terminal and Ascend to the tower.
Rabella Wetlands Skyview Tower
The Rabella Westlands Skyview Tower is similar to Rospro Pass, where thorns can be found all over it. However, this tower’s located northwest of Lurelin Village and south of East Necluda. This means that you’ll need some resources that can light things on fire to make your way through. But there’s a problem: it’s constantly raining in the area.
The answer to that problem is by using Ultrahand. Make use of the man-made rows that can be found near the tower to create rooftops. By using it as a shelter for the thorns above them, you can protect the fire as it gets the job done. Eradicating the thorns will take a few tries; as long as you set all the vines aflame, you can access the Rabella Westlands Skyview Tower.
Gerudo Canyon Skyview Tower
The Gerudo Canyon Skyview Tower is northwest of the Faron Grasslands and northeast of the Gerudo Desert. Since it overlooks the desert, you can immediately spot it high up when traveling through the canyons to Gerudo Town. Getting to the area is a hassle, but thankfully, you can use the hills to climb.
Once you arrive, you’ll notice that you can’t activate the terminal, but fear not—Sawson’s there for the job—provided that you help him fix it. To do so, build a rickety lift using Ultrahand to bring Sawson to the tower. Some materials are near a construction post; you can use that to create the lift.
Gerudo Highlands Skyview Tower
The Gerudo Highlands Skyview Tower is in the snowy region of the Gerudo Highlands on Meadela’s Mantle, so be sure to bring warm clothes or food. This is one of the hardest towers to access in the game.
At first, you’ll notice that the tower is buried in snow, and you can’t get to it. What you need to do is head into a cave behind the tower called Meadela’s Mantle Cave. You’ll see a water stream, so build a raft using Ultrahand and head down to the river. Then, use Ascend at the right time when the current takes you underneath the wooden structure to get inside the tower.
Upland Zorana Skyview Tower
Northeast of Lanayru Westlands and west of Zora’s Domain, the Upland Zorana Skyview Tower should be your top priority if you want the area around the eastern side of Hyrule easier to navigate. I highly recommend getting the Zora Armor before heading to this tower, though, unless you can find a high point on the other end.
To access the Zorana Skyview Tower, throw some Splash Fruit or blue Chuchu Jelly on the sludge stuck on the door to clean it off.
Mount Lanayru Skyland Tower
You’ll be pleased to hear that the Mount Lanayru Skyland Tower has no unlock requirements; you simply need to get there and activate the terminal. The tower can be found north of Hateno Village and the Necluda Sea. You’ll be fine if you have plenty of Spicy Peppers or other dishes that can warm you up.
Eldin Canyon Skyland Tower
It’s time to take to the skies for this one! The Eldin Canyon Skyland Tower is located south of the Eldin Canyon and northeast of Lookout Landing. Since you can’t get inside from the tower at the front, you’ll need to get on top of it by any means necessary. You can find a sky fragment to fly you or craft a device using Zonai items like balloons to get you to your destination.
Ulri Mountain Skyland Tower
The Ulri Mountain Sktyland Tower is in the Akkala Highlands region, east of Death Mountain. You can get inside the tower, but the terminal is nowhere to be found. You’ll meet Sawsom there, who will tell you that a flying monster has the device.
To take down the flying monster, you can use Zonai items, a bow, and some arrows to kill it. Don’t approach it from the ground, lest you scare it away and it flies even higher. Once you have the dropped console, give it to Sawson, and he’ll install it on the tower for you.
