The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom Ekochiu Shrine Puzzle is a bit tricky and can be a tad confusing. You’ll need to combine a few abilities and have unlocked the Paraglider to solve the Rise and Fall puzzles. Here’s how to complete the Ekochiu Shrine puzzle.
How to solve the Ekochiu Shrine puzzle in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom
The Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom Ekochiu Shrine is found in the Great Hyrule Forest region. The Rise and Fall puzzles will task you with using your Rewind and Ultrahand ability, along with your Paraglider, to make it through the Shrine.
As you head inside the Ekochiu Shrine, you’ll see a large gap that you need to cross. Simply stand on the button to push the block to the other side and wait for it to come back.
Once it’s back, hop on the block and use your Rewind ability to get to the other side. In the next room, you’ll see a moving body of water and a big box that’s dropped from the upper ledge. There is also a hidden chest in this room.
To get the chest, use your Ultrahand ability to move the box to the ledge on the right side. You’ll want to prop the box up so that it’s not completely in the water, otherwise, it’ll move with the current.
Climb on top of the box and hop on the ledge to get the chest. Inside, you’ll find a Level 11 Zonaite Shield.
Now that you’ve gotten the chest, hop back into the water and move the box over to the far ledge. With your Ultrahand, move the box from the water to the top of the ledge and then back down.
Then, climb on top of the box and use your Rewind ability and the box will lift you up to the top of the ledge.
For the last puzzle in the Ekochiu Shrine, you’ll find another big cube in the back right corner. Place the cube onto the platform by the fence and then climb the ladder to get back on top of the ledge.
Stand on the button to launch the box up in the air. Once it’s back, jump down and climb on top of the box. Then, use your Rewind ability to shoot the box back up in the air.
When the box is high enough, jump off and use your Paraglider to get to the other side. Once you make it across, claim your Light of Blessing and you’ll have completed the Ekochiu Shrine in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.
