Icefall Foothills is an area in Breath of the Wild and Tears of the Kingdom.

Breath of the Wild

Icefall Foothills is located at the far northwestern edge of the Hebra Mountains, and the far northwestern edge of the world. As with most of the Hebra province, there area is bitterly cold and will require Link to have armor with Cold Resistance, such as the Snowquill Set, in order to survive. The foothills are on a much lower elevation, with the Hebra North Summit range located to the south and east.

In the center of the a large Stalnox will appear at nighttime. During the daytime, its bones can be seen crumbled on the floor. Just to the southeast of the Stalnox, there are some Ore Deposits, with a Rare Ore Deposit found within the frozen ice.

There is a Korok that Link can get, just east of the shrine. Use Magnesis to grab the block so that the two block structures mirror each other..

There are two treasure chests up on the mountain, on the higher level south of the shrine. One can be found buried in the snow and it contains a Ruby gem. A second can be found behind some boulders a little bit up from there and it contains a Knight's Halberd. A third treasure chest is found at the very far end of the Icefall Foothills. Follow the path all the way eastward and then drop down further below to find some frozen ice blocks. Melt the ice to find a treasure chest that contains ten Bomb Arrows.

Tears of the Kingdom

The Icefall Foothills can be found at the far northwest end of the map, north of the Hebra North Summit. The area is at a lower elevation, but it is still cold, requiring one level of Cold Resistance for Link to survive. Early on in the game, the Blizzard effecting the region will cause perpetually snowfall.

Korok Seed

  • At the far east end of the foothills, there are a few wind geysers. Just to the east of them there is a platform with a stump. Step on it and it creates a target well to the west, back at the foothills. Glide and use the wind geysers to land on the target and get the Korok Seed.
