Features and Overview
Lantern Caverns can be found all arround Hyrule hidden behind walls that can be destroyed with Bombs, Bomb Arrows, or the Ball and Chain. They usually contain Poe Souls, Pieces of Heart, and large amounts of Rupees. Lantern Caverns are maze-like caves that require the Lantern to navigate their dark halls. Spiderwebs usually block the path forward, so Link must burn them with the Lantern. Upon reaching the end of a Lantern Cavern, Link must backtrack to return to the entrance.
The first of these Caverns is found in Faron Woods and serves as a path connecting two big portions of the forest. It is the shortest and least complex of the Lantern Caverns. Wolf Link can dig up a shortcut that allows him to skip most of the cave. Another Lantern Cavern can be found on the west side of the Kakariko Gorge. The largest Lantern Cavern is located on Lake Hylia behind a cracked Boulder. It provides a portal halfway through that will send Link back to the entrance. Inside the Cavern, Link stumbles upon various paths blocked with Boulders.
