Hidden Grottos are hidden holes in the ground that you can find while in wolf form with your senses engaged. When you find one, simply dig into it to enter, and climb into the shaft of light to leave.

Gerudo Desert[edit]

  1. This grotto is located on a raised platform south of the oasis flight landing spot. You'll find the hole in the middle of a trio of skulls.

    • Enemies: Skulltulas
    • Rewards: 100 Rupees (Kill all the Skulltulas)
  2. Travel northeast of the Gerudo Mesa warp point until you drop down into the lower gully. Look for a boulder along the wall with a trio of skulls near it. Dig in the center to enter the grotto.
    • Items Required: None
    • Enemies: Chus
    • Rewards: Free Potions
  3. Head down into the gully like you would for Grotto #2. In the northwest area of the gully is a hill with a tree on it. Grapple up to the hill and you'll find another trio of skulls. The grotto is in the center.

  2. This one is tricky to find. The easiest way is to start in Kakariko Gorge and travel north to the next part of Hyrule Field (you will need to blow up some boulders if you haven't cleared the path). Then head northwest about half way across the field. Next to some white sand is a brown patch of dirt. Dig here for the grotto. It helps to have your senses engaged while finding this one, as you can see the telltale shiny black patch.

Sacred Grove[edit]
