Features and Overview

Breath of the Wild

The Great Hyrule Forest is a large wooded area in northern Hyrule, consisting of the vast majority of north Central Hyrule. The area is characterized by its woodlands and rolling hills that extend to the Eldin Mountains further north. Its most notable landmark are the Lost Woods in its center, a dense forest that is surrounded by an enormous gorge known as Lake Mekar. Along with the Lost Woods, the Great Hyrule Forest consists of multiple smaller woodlands that together make up the entire Forest.

The area borders Hyrule Field to the south, Hebra to the west, and the Eldin Canyon directly east. A trail paves between the Forest and Hyrule Field, connecting the Forest to Eldin, and, further east, the Akkala and Lanayru Regions. The Woodland Stable sits between the Forest, Hyrule Field, and Eldin Canyon.[8] The trail going north leads through its smaller woodlands before finally reaching the Lost Woods. These enchanted Woods are covered in a dense fog that causes travelers to lose their way.[9] The Lost Woods themselves surround the Korok Forest, where the Koroks and the Great Deku Tree thrive. The Korok Forest also houses the Master Sword, left there by Princess Zelda after the losing battle against Calamity Ganon 100 years ago. The woodlands end at the Lost Woods, and give way to rolling hills and mountains further north before eventually reaching the Thyphlo Ruins; the Forest's final stretch.

Notes

  1. While Sesami suggests that the Great Hyrule Forest is in the Eldin region,[5] the staff of the Woodland Stable state that the Forest is actually separate from the Eldin region[6] and that Eldin is located to the northeast instead of northwest where the Forest resides.[7] The placement of the Great Hyrule Forest within Central Hyrule, as presented in Creating a Champion, is thus not discounted or overruled by Sesami's claim.

As I went deeper into the forest, the wind was blowing this way and that! Chilled me to the bone. I got scared and ran as fast as I could, trying to get away from the howling wind. Then all of a sudden, the fog lifted, and I was standing outside the forest... There's something dangerous hiding in those Lost Woods. Don't go wandering in there." — Ashe (Breath of the Wild)
