The Sturnida Basin is a location found in Breath of the Wild.
The Sturnida Basin is located just northwest of Lake Kilsie at the west side of the Hebra Mountains. The basin includes the nearby Sturnida Secret Hot Spring and it leads up north to the Biron Snowshelf. Like most of the Hebra region, the weather is bitterly cold, requiring Link to wear armor with Cold Resistance, such as the Snowquill Set.
On the higher ledge to the east, there is a treasure chest buried in the snow. The chest is near a tree and contains a Silver Rupee.

If Link speaks with Selmie at Selmie's Spot, he can participate in Selmie's Shield-Surfing mini-game. When Link unlocks the advanced track, the end goal is located by the flags at the bottom of the Sturnida Basin, just north of the hot spring. If Link is quick enough, he can earn quality shields as rewards, including a Knight's Shield and Royal Shield.
