Want to navigate through the Lost Woods and reach the Korok Forest in Zelda TOTK? Then here is how to get through the Lost Woods in Tears of the Kingdom.

Zelda BOTW players will already be familiar with the Lost Woods. The fog-infested forest has now made its return in Tears of the Kingdom as well. The Lost Woods is the only way you can access Korok Forest in Zelda TOTK. But whenever you try to go inside the Lost Woods, you will be sent back to the main entrance each time. So, the question arises, is there no other way to reach the Korok Forest? Luckily, there is a way to navigate the Lost Woods. Here is our guide explaining how to get through the Lost Woods in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom.

How to Get Through Lost Woods & Reach Korok Forest in Tears of the Kingdom


Firstly, you must stop trying to go through the dense fog. Yes, you will have to skip the Lost Woods completely and take the Depths instead to reach the Korok Forest in Zelda TOTK. Here are all the steps you need to take while getting through the Lost Woods in Tears of the Kingdom:

Note: Since you will enter the Depths, it’s wise to stock up on Brightbloom Seeds as they will help light your way.


  1. You will need to head to the Minshi Woods Chasm which is located at the coordinates 1059, 1655, 0165. Jump into the chasm using your Paraglider in TOTK.
  2. Once you’re inside the chasm, just keep heading north while lighting your way with Brightbloom Seeds and you will notice a pretty clear path ahead of you.
  3. You will find several Poes scattered around the path. Make sure to avoid the Gloom Hands – a deadly enemy that has the appearance of a red sticky substance.
  4. If you walk far enough, you will reach Korok Grove in the Great Hyrule Forest Depths.
  5. You will also find a few Ogre trees around you with a huge stone structure in the distance.
  6. Climb to the top of the Ogre trees and keep gliding off of them to reach the stone platform. You can find it at coordinates 0436, 2094, -0588.
  7. Once you are on the Stone platform, simply use the Ascend ability to come out of the Depths and reach the Korok forest.
