Mt. Tamaranch is a location in Link's Awakening.[1][note 1]

Features and Overview

Mount Tamaranch is a large mountain that is located in the center of Koholint Island and is the largest mountain in the Tal Tal Mountain Range. Its most famous feature is a giant, red-spotted egg that contains the Wind Fish on the mountain's peak. Link can go over to where the Wind Fish's Egg lays, but he cannot actually awaken it without all the Instruments of the Sirens. Also in the large mountain range are several dungeons such as the Eagle's Tower. There are also many caves throughout Mount Tamaranch, obligating the hero to visit the caverns many times throughout his journey to obtain treasure.

The final Nightmare is fought upon Mount Tamaranch inside the Wind Fish's Egg.
