Hila Rao Shrine, designated by the Trial name Drifting, is an Ancient Shrine in Breath of the Wild.

Entrance to the Shrine

Hila Rao Shrine is located in West Necluda. The Shrine is located on Floret Sandbar, which is an island west of Riverside Stable. Surrounding the Shrine are rings of flowers that if Link touches, he will be chastised by the woman Magda not to disturb the flower beds.[1] This gives Link the Shrine Quest "Watch Out for the Flowers." Link must make his way to the Shrine without disturbing the flowers in order to access the Shrine.

Themes and Navigation

Hila Rao Shrine features three sections of water that slowly move, carrying certain items. The first section is simply a section of water moving to the left carrying a piece of wood. Link must cross the water, though the wood is not necessary to cross. The second section is similar to the first but contains a wider section of water that carries three differently timed pieces of wood. Again, Link must simply cross the water. Underwater, a Treasure Chest sits near the far wall. Inside it is an Opal. The third section features a section of water moving in a circle around a fence. Explosive Barrels and a Treasure Chest are also floating in this section of water. Inside the Chest are five Ice Arrows. The far exit is blocked by a stone wall, so Link must use his Remote Bombs to time an explosion to destroy the wall. Once Link destroys the wall, the path to the Monk Hila Rao is clear. Hila Rao will give Link a Spirit Orb for completing the Trial and will wish Link well before fading away.[2][3]
