Features and Overview

Breath of the Wild

The Akkala Highlands are a densely-wooded area in the northeast of Hyrule. It borders the Akkala Sea to the east, Deep Akkala to the north, Eldin Canyon to the west, and the Lanayru Great Spring to the south. As with the Akkala Region itself, the Trees in the Akkala Highlands possess a permanent Autumnal coloration.

The Akkala Highlands have historically been a defensive region for Hyrule Kingdom, defending it from attacks from the Akkala Sea with the Akkala Citadel. Ironically, the Akkala Highlands are where the Hyrule Kingdom fell during the second Great Calamity from a Guardian attack originating at Hyrule Kingdom's center, Hyrule Field.[4]

A century after the second Great Calamity, the Bolson Construction company attempts to reconstruct civilization in the Akkala Highlands by dispatching Hudson to build a new settlement. Hudson settles on a rock island in the northern part of Lake Akkala, naming the new village Tarrey Town. At some point prior to this, Epona Co. established the South Akkala Stable near the base of the Akkala Citadel Ruins to assist travelers in the region.
