In Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, there will be a lot of people who make comments to Link throughout the world about the dye shops and fashion scene in Hateno Village. As more and more rumors are spread, Link will likely want to visit the village for himself, as he will begin collecting fabrics and dyes that can change the appearance of his clothes and paraglider. Players may also be interested in the village’s fresh veggies for recipes that they may otherwise have trouble collecting.


The map of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom compared to Zelda: Breath of the Wild has expanded both skyward and underground. Even so, players may find things on the more familiar Hyrule map that have changed and are different. This may make it difficult to find even familiar places, such as Hateno Village, when not everything is the same and the fast travel points have changed as well.

Finding Hateno Village in TotK

Hateno Village in TotK Map Location

The best route to find Hateno Village is to first head to Mount Lanayru Skyview Tower. It can be reached by any number of traversal mechanisms in TotK, but one easy way is to head higher up in Zora’s Domain and paraglide across the lake toward the base of Mount Lanayru. From there it is fairly straightforward to walk up the mountain, as most of the slopes can be walked on as opposed to using stamina to climb. Be aware that to climb the mountain, Link will need heavy cold resistance outfits or a cold resistance elixir.

Players can find heavier winter attire for resisting the cold in Rito Village at the clothing shop there.

There is no puzzle to solve at the Mount Lanyru Skyview Tower in TotK, so open the doors and activate the tower. Before getting pushed into the sky, use a pin and mark an area near the Southeast corner of the map, this will help Link glide in the right direction from the sky. Once he is in the air and has updated the map, open the map and look for Hateno Beach. This is not where the Village itself is, but it is close. Glide in that direction and dive when needed.

Link should be able, even with the minimum stamina bar, to reach the sky near Hateno Village to see the nearby Zanmik Shrine. Look for the telltale glowing light above the shrine, and nearby should be a group of buildings. At that point, if Link does not have an upgraded stamina wheel or stamina-boosting food, pin the location of the shrine and land safely. If Link has enough stamina, continue to glide over to the village and land near the shrine.

Either way, the Zanmik Shrine should guide the players the rest of the way as it rests on the edge of the village. Once there, there are multiple side quests, lots of shops, and a nice place to rest as needed. Link can now enjoy exploring and affecting local politics in Hateno Village in Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.

A rare occurrence in Zelda titles, Tears of the Kingdom is a direct sequel instead of loosely connected. In Tears of the Kingdom, Link will take to the skies and learn about a mysterious kingdom in the clouds. Additionally, he will discover the secrets of the dark ones that dwell below and above the earth. The sequel is being built on the same engine as the original, with unique physics tools again being utilized. However, little about the plot and gameplay is known.
