The Voo Lota Shrine,[1] designated by the Trial name The Winding Route,[1] is an Ancient Shrine in Breath of the Wild.

Entrance to the Shrine

The Voo Lota Shrine is located in at Warbler's Nest on the Tabantha Frontier, west of Rito Village. The Ancient Shrine is initially buried beneath the ground, but once Link has completed the Main Quest "Divine Beast Vah Medoh", he will find Kheel singing there on her own.[2] She asks Link to remind her sisters of their rehearsal,[3] This begins the Shrine Quest "Recital at Warbler's Nest".

In Rito Village, Link will find Genli by the Cooking Pot, who demands Salmon Meunière before practicing her singing.[4] The rest of her and Kheel's sisters went to gather ingredients for her,[5]

Link can find all three remaining sisters throughout the Village. Cree is found in The Slippery Falcon, where she'll give Link the Goat Butter she bought if he makes Genli Salmon Meunière.[6] Kotts is found fishing at the ponds leading into Rito Village,[7] having forgotten about practice.[8] She'll give Link a Hearty Salmon.[9] Finally, Notts is found on a ledge overlooking Akh Va'quot Shrine. Since she finished gathering her ingredient early, she decided to start practicing.[10] She'll give Link her Tabantha Wheat so he can make Salmon Meunière.[11]

Once Link has sent the three sisters to the Warbler's Nest, he can return to Genli at the Cooking Pot. She recognizes the smell of Salmon Meunière and asks for Link to let her have some.[12] If he gives it to her, Genli decides to keep her promise and head to Warbler's Nest.[13]

At the Warbler's Nest, Link will find all five sisters singing a song. He can use a Korok Leaf to blow through holes in rocks nearby, in correlation to the sisters song. When this is done, Voo Lota Shrine will appear.[14] This completes the Shrine Quest.

As Link enters Voo Lota Shrine, he's greeted by its Monk, Voo Lota.[15]

Themes and Navigation

In front of Link, a ladder extends high into the air. Atop the ladder, a short tunnel leads to a Switch. If he walks close to the switch, a gate will close behind him. Hitting the switch will open the floor from underneath him and plunge Link towards lava.

Link is able to escape by Paragliding into a fan, which will blow him to a platform and a locked gate which conceals Voo Lota. To open the portcullis, he must jump west of the Monk and paraglide to another platform, stopping before he hits a wall of spikes. He must then walk to the end of the path, where a fan can blow him upward to another platform.

Again, Link must jump and glide over and then under more spikes and land on another platform. On this platform, a Treasure Chest containing a Small Key sits next to a wall of spikes. He then makes his way back to the original platform and unlock the gate to complete the shrine.

Upon approaching the Monk, Voo Lota will grant Link a Spirit Orb.[16] Afterwards, Voo Lota wishes him well and fades away.[17]

On the last platform before gliding back and unlocking the door, a Treasure Chest can be found on a separate platform near containing a Flameblade. If Link goes for this Chest, he will be able to make his way back to the main path via a few fans.
