Features and Overview

Breath of the Wild

The Gerudo Highlands surround the Gerudo Desert and isolate the area from the rest of Hyrule Kingdom. Its cliffs sit to the east of the Desert and its tall, snowy mountains overlook the Desert to the north. Link needs protection from the cold to navigate the northern and southeastern Highlands unharmed. Gerudo Highlands is the location where the ancient Sheikah technology was first uncovered.[4] Nine Stone Taluses can be found throughout the Highlands.


The Gerudo Highlands contain two distinct climates, "Gerudo frost" and "Gerudo plateau." The two climates are unique to the Gerudo Highlands, and do not appear in other map areas.

The Gerudo frost climate is split into two sub-areas. The northern portion spans from Mount Agaat to Zirco Mesa, with the middle bounded by the Cliffs of Ruvara and Birida Lookout. The canyon housing the Yiga Clan Hideout forms a noticeable intrusion into the area.

The southern portion of the Gerudo frost climate surrounds Mount Granajh and Daval Peak. Comparatively, it has a noticeable lack of Wildberries and cutting Grass can spawn Hot-Footed Frogs instead of Restless Crickets.

The Gerudo plateau climate is a dominant, contiguous climate. In the north, the area surrounds the base of Mount Agaat and is split by the Gerudo frost climate. It stretches southeast to the Oseira Plains and Nautelle Wetlands.
