Features and Overview

Breath of the Wild

Tanagar Canyon is part of the Tabantha Frontier, comprising its border with Hyrule Ridge. The Canyon also reaches the edges of the Great Hyrule Forest, Hyrule Field, and the Tabantha Tundra. It is spanned by the Tabantha Great Bridge on its southern end, where many windmills can be found. The Tanagar Canyon Course and the Forgotten Temple can both be found within Tanagar Canyon. The Dunba Taag Shrine is also within a crag near the Canyon's center. Lastly, many Ore Deposits and Rare Ore Deposits can be found along the Canyon's walls.

Every night, Dinraal will fly through Tanagar Canyon. This causes Winds and Updrafts to appear surrounding it.

In total, 20 Korok Seed Puzzles are located within and on the walls of the Tanagar Canyon. When Link solves each of these Puzzles, a Korok will appear, which then proceeds to give him a Korok Seed as a reward.[4] These locations are as follows:

  • A Rock Pattern at the southwestern end of the Canyon.
  • A Jar hanging from the southernmost windmill, which Link must destroy using Archery.
