The Haunted Wasteland is a desert in Ocarina of Time. Link must cross it to be able to enter the Desert Colossus and the Spirit Temple. He only needs to cross it once, because once he makes it to the Spirit Temple he is able to learn the Requiem of Spirit, which allows Link to instantly warp to the temple. Entering the wasteland requires beating Gerudo Fortress, and crossing the River of Sand, which requires the Longshot or Hover Boots. To cross the desert, one must follow flags on top of wooden poles which lead to a small round building. Once there one must use the Lens of Truth to make a Big Poe appear that leads the rest of the way across the desert. There are four Gold Skulltulas, not including the ones in the Spirit Temple, within this vast desert.
