Zelda: Breath of the Wild – Ha Dahamar Shrine Guide

by Bryan Dawson

The Ha Dahamar Shrine is home to the Water Guides in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. This Ha Dahamar Shrine guide covers how to get through the shrine and collect the treasure chest inside.  Ha Dahamar Shrine is located just west of the Dueling Peaks Stable, after passing through the Dueling Peaks area a short while into the game. As the Water Guides name would suggest, it’s a shrine focused on Water.

To get through the Ha Dahamar Shrine you will need to equip the Cryonis ability on your Sheikah Slate. This is the ability that allows you to create an ice column anywhere there’s water. When you reach the first waterfall, create an ice column on the water below Link and use it to jump across to the next ledge.

When you get to the second waterfall you need to create two ice columns that protrude horizontally from the waterfall to the right. Once you create the first ice column, climb on top of it, then create the second ice column so you can use them like stepping stones to reach the far side. However, before you take off toward the end, turn around and create a third ice column so you can start making your way to the platform above.

Climb onto the third ice column and you should be able to clearly see the chest above you. Create a fourth ice column and you should be able to climb on top of it and reach the chest. Inside the chest you’ll find a Purple Rupee that adds 50 rupees to your wallet.

Drop or glide back down to the lower area and continue up the long flight of stairs. If you look to the right you’ll see a ball rolling down a series of platforms and a see-saw lever below them. You need to place several key ice columns on that waterfall to the right in order to make the ball roll to the right and eventually down to the lower level where it will unlock the door to the final chamber of the shrine.

You can see the placement of all three ice columns in the two screens above. With this placement the ball will roll all the way down and unlock the door at the base so you can access the final room and obtain another Spirit Orb.
