"The Koroks live in harmony with the Great Deku Tree and aid in protecting the Master Sword. They transformed the entrance to the Great Hyrule Forest into the Lost Woods to drive away intruders... Rumours of the legendary Master Sword swirl among legendary treasure hunters and at least one traveling gossip, but the Lost Woods prevent any intrusion by outsiders, so the existence of the sword's resting place remains a mystery."

Entrance to the Lost Woods



Lost Woods is a location in Breath of the Wild. It surrounds the Korok Forest, and together they form the Great Hyrule Forest. Most of the woods are off-limits, with only a certain path available for travel. If Link goes off of the proper path, he will become enveloped in the surrounding fog and returned to the woods' entrance.

While the paths through the woods are often marked in different ways (the main way being the direction the fire on the pillars are blowing), Link can always navigate the woods by keeping an eye out for banks of fog closing in on Link's position. As soon as the fog begins to envelop Link, reverse direction and backtrack a few meters. With care, there should be plenty of time to avoid fading completely to white. Carrying a lit torch will also point the way, if one pays attention to the flame's direction.

On successfully navigating through the Lost Woods, Link will enter the Korok Forest, which contains the Pedestal of the Master Sword with the Master Sword itself, some Shrine Quests, and a shrine.

In order to avoid traversing the Lost Woods to get to the Korok Forest, it's recommended that Keo Ruug Shrine's travel gate is activated.
