The Lake Kilsie is a location found in Breath of the Wild and Tears of the Kingdom.

Breath of the Wild

Lake Kilsie is a frigid lake, found at the west side of the Hebra Mountains. As with most of the Hebra Tower region, the temperature is frigid, requiring Link to have armor with Cold Resistance to survive, such as the Snowquill Set. Despite the temperature dropping to less than 10 degrees Fahrenheit at some locations, the lake is safe to swim in. The cold temperature of the lake makes it so that no fish are able to survive.

At the south end of the Lake there is a dock with a Raft near it. On the raft is a Korok Leaf, which can be used to navigate across the Lake. A second raft can be found near the docks at the center of the lake, with a third raft found at the far north end.

At the southeast end of the lake there is a small island with some boulders on it. Link can blast away at the boulders, causing a large wind geyser to appear. The air can be used alongside the Paraglider to quickly reach higher elevations around the Lake. Similar boulders with wind geysers can be found near the docks at the center of the lake, at the island near the center of the lake, and all throughout the region.

At the west side of the Lake on the cliffs, directly west of the center docks, there is an odd set of boulders against the wall. It's a bit awkward to drop a bomb in the area, but doing so causes a treasure chest containing a Meteor Rod to fall down the cliff. Another chest with a Silver Rupee can be found buried in the snow just north of the docks at the far north end of the lake, near one of the trees.

Maka Rah Shrine

Main article: Maka Rah Shrine

Near the docks at the center of the lake, Link can peek through a narrow hole in the wall to see the shrine, but cannot access it. If Link travels to the tall island that sticks out of the center of the lake, he'll find some boulders. Blast away the boulders with a bomb and then use the Paraglider to fly up. From here, if Link looks directly westward, he'll see a tunnel that is indicated by torches on each side. Travel to this area and then carefully drop down. Swim in the water through the narrow corridor to find the shrine.

The actual shrine has a series of diverse challenges, requiring Link to light a torch, navigate a moving spiked platform, use Cryonis to create ice blocks, and use Magnesis to maneuver past a spiked ball. At the end of the shrine, Link will meet with Maka Rah to get a Spirit Orb.

Tears of the Kingdom

Lake Kilsie is a body of water found in the Hebra Mountains, well northwest of Rito Village. It is very cold at the Lake, requiring Link to have a level of Cold Resistance in order to survive. Early in the game, the effects of the Blizzard can be seen at Lake Kilsie, where it is perpetually snowing.

Lake Kilsie Cave

Main article: Lake Kilsie Cave

At the north end of the Lake, there is an entrance to the Lake Kilsie Cave. This is a call cylindrical cave with a few rooms that break off from the main room. A wind geyser can be used to easily navigate the cave. In the middle hole, it leads to a room with a chest that contains the Frostbite Headdress.

Treasure Chests

  • Bomb Flower x5 - At the south end of the lake, there is a large pillar stick up from the water. The treasure chest can be found at the top.
  • Opal - At the northeast end of the Lake, up way high on the cliff. Melt the ice block to get the chest.
  • Sapphire - At the north end of the Lake, found in a chest that is underwater near some ruins at the north dock. Lift it out of the water with Ultrahand.

Korok Seeds

  • At the south end of the Lake a bit up the cliff, there are three statues. Use the three nearby Wooden Boards to create a roof and place it over the statues to get the Korok Seed.
  • At the south end of the Lake, near the dock, there is a Korok who wants to reunite with his friend further up the lake. Link can use the nearby Fans and Steering Stick to attach it to the raft in the water. Link can ride the Korok over to reunite them and get a pair of Korok Seeds.
  • At the west side of the lake on the higher cliff, just north of the docks, there is a circle of rocks. Two rocks are missing from the arrangement. Place them in their proper spots to get the Korok Seed.
  • At the northeast end of the Lake there is a boulder that can be destroyed, which creates a wind geyser. Ride it up to a ledge with a block of ice. Melt the ice and lift the rock here to get the Korok Seed.
  • Northerast of Lake Kilside, there is an upward slope heading to the northeast. On one of the cliffsides here there is an overhang with a rock on top of it. Lift the rock to get the Korok Seed.
