Originating from the Great Sky Islands and as part of the To the Kingdom of Hyrule In the mission, Link will have to jump to the surface of Hyrule without a glider, so make sure you stick the landing in the lake below so he survives the fall.

Once you land in Hyrule, you will proceed with the Crisis at Hyrule Castle search. Follow the marker north to reach Lookout Landing, where you will find yourself pure. For now, follow the objective to search for Captain Sickle in Hyrule Castle in the north and we will return to Purah later.

Go up the castle to the next marker. Once you’re on the marker, use Ascend to easily reach the upper level where you’ll find Captain Sickle. After the scene where one of the guards spots Zelda, you can either explore the rest of the castle or head back to Lookout Landing for now.

The paraglider can be deployed by pressing the X button during free fall. press the R button to stow the glider and dive, and can be redeployed. As it slides down, it will slowly consume Link’s stamina. To counteract this, you can consume a food that replenishes stamina in mid-flight.

If you have enough altitude to spare, you can also extend the distance of your glide by first freefalling and moving the analog stick to where you want to land. Then, use your glider once you’re within gliding distance to ensure you’ll have a safe landing.

The paraglider can also be used on the updrafts created by the llamas to gain some altitude, although creating your own fire and riding it takes a bit of time and the amount of height you can reach wouldn’t be that great.
