Steps to activate the Tower

Once you've completed your long ascent, you'll soon realise that the entrance to the Tower of the Gerudos Heights is buried under snow. As a result, it's simply impossible to open the doors. The book in the tent next to it gives you an essential clue: you must take a cave under the tower.

The cave in question is the Esmara Plateau cave whose entrance is located at the back of the Tower, in the rock face. Once in the tunnel, you must make your way to the underground river.

There, turn to the wooden parts depot for build a makeshift raft. There's no need to build anything crazy: the current will guide you to your destination, even with just a board. Drop into the waterfall and make your way back to dry land.

Next, you'll need an arrow capable of generate an ice shelf in the water. Draw your bow and shoot the arrow between the pillars, below the wooden plate next to the ceiling. The idea is to be able to use Infiltration at this level to reach the inside of the tower.

Once you've reached the heart of the tower, you can place your Pru'Ha Tablet on the terminal and retrieve the associated data and the teleportation point. That's all for this guide!
