The Great Plateau is the starting area of Breath of the Wild. The area is a large expanse that covers various different terrains as well as being raised above the ground level of the rest of the world. It contains the Shrine of Resurrection where Link first awakens and the Great Plateau Tower. Since the Great Plateau is surrounded by high cliffs, Link is unable to leave the area until he acquires the Paraglider from the Old Man.
Nearby Korok Seeds
Note: These seeds represent only the seeds closest to the Great Plateau Landmark (where the word Great Plateau is written on the in-game map.) For a listing of nearby seeds, see each Landmark's page, or refer to the Great Plateau Tower page for a list of all landmarks revealed by that tower. If you're looking for a list of the 18 seeds found in the region revealed by the Great Plateau Tower (3 of which can only be accessed after you get the Paraglider), see our walkthrough page for Great Plateau Korok Seed Locations.
Perhaps the first Korok Seed that can be acquired in the game is available just downhill from the Shrine of Resurrection. There will be a small pond on the right, with an island in the middle with a sword on top. A small promontory juts out towards the island, and if you look immediately below, you will see a ring of lilies making a perfect circle in the water. Jump from where the cliff juts out directly into that circle to get the Korok Seed.
