Tears of the Kingdom Gutanbac Shrine Guide



The Gutanbac Shrine is among the various shrines present on Great Sky Island in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. The sanctuary is located in the snowy part of the islands, and it can be perplexing for some to figure out how to get there. However, getting to the shrine and getting one of the ancient abilities from him will make future climbs easier.

Read on as we walk through the steps on how to get to the Gutanbac Shrine and solve your challenge in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.

How to get to the Gutanbac Sanctuary

After completing the In-Isa Shrine from the south, head to the snowy region northeast of where you are. Would you like to travel until you reach the source of the river or waterfall in the area.

Once you see the waterfall, take the path on the left that passes under the waterfall. The cliff where the waterfall comes from has all its rock faces covered in slippery ice except for a climbing trail that runs next to the waterfall.

Once you reach the top of the cliff, you will be able to see the Gutanbac Sanctuary a short distance away.

How to solve the Gutanbac Shrine

Upon entering the Gutanbac Shrine, you will be granted the Ascend ability, which allows you to travel through solid material upwards to reach a higher level.

Inside the main shrine chamber, go ahead and test your new ability by using it under the gap in the wall. Then, use Ascend and you’ll start swimming up to the floor above; if it doesn’t start to go up, try to reposition yourself until you see the grid above your head turn green.

Do this again on the platforms sticking out of the wall. The smaller platform has a chest with a stone ax inside, the tall platform takes you to the top. Defeat the building ahead and then check the wall to the right, break the crates, then use the Ascend ability again. At the top, you can get a chest that contains a Construct Bow.

For the final puzzle, you will see a bridge held up by two ropes. Cut the ropes with your weapon and then go under the bridge. Use Ascend to go over the bridge, then go to the statues in the shrine to receive your Blessing Light.

After completing the shrine, continue traveling north where you will find a platform where you can use the Zonai Wings to return to the Temple of Time.
