Mount Lanayru is a location in Breath of the Wild.[1]

Features and Overview

Mount Lanayru is a large mountain within the Lanayru Range, south of Zora's Domain. It is considered a sacred site and is home to the Spring of Wisdom at its peak. The site is off-limits to anyone under the age of 17, lacking the requisite wisdom to be there.[2] Link must journey to Mount Lanayru as part of the Shrine Quest "The Spring of Wisdom". Upon reaching the summit, Link will find Naydra, Spring of Wisdom's guardian, possessed by Malice.[3] When Naydra is freed, Link recieves Naydra's Scale, which is used to reveal the Jitan Sa'mi Shrine. Due to its cold nature, Link will constantly take damage if he does not wear any cold-resistant Armor, such as the Snowquill Set, or eats cold-resistant Food, like Spicy Peppers.

Three Koroks can be found near Mount Lanayru's peak. The first two can be uncovered by melting ice blocks to the northwest and the third Korok is to the northeast where a circle of rocks must be completed.
