Rist Peninsula is a location in Breath of the Wild.[citation needed]

Features and Overview

Rist Peninsula spans from the Akkala Highlands into the Akkala Sea on the eastern edge of Hyrule. It is a spiraled sandbar. If Link places an Ancient Orb in the Stone Sphere Socket at the center of the peninsula, Ritaag Zumo Shrine will rise up from the ground.[1]


Rist Peninsula's name may be an anagram of the word stir, as it features a spiral pattern.
