The Kuh Takkar Shrine,[1] designated by the Trial name Melting Ice Hazard,[1] is an Ancient Shrine in Breath of the Wild.

Entrance to the Shrine

Kuh Takkar Shrine is located in Gerudo Highlands, at the base of Laparoh Mesa. Link must melt the chunk of ice that is frozen around the shrine with any flammable item in order to gain access to the shrine.

Themes and Navigation

Upon entering, the Monk Kuh Takkar can be heard, telling Link that the path forward will only open when Link offers a block of ice.[2] The Kuh Takkar Shrine features one chamber with multiple columns of fire. In order to complete the Trial, Link must bring an ice block to Kuh Takkar without melting it in the fire. Link must then use a metal block placed in lava in order to traverse through the fire. Once Link does this, the door will open and Link will meet Kuh Takkar. Kuh Takkar will give Link a Spirit Orb for completing the Trial,[3] and will wish Link well before fading away.[4]

A Treasure Chest within a pillar blocked by fire contains a Frostblade.
