As you can see from the map above, getting to the shrine requires quite a bit of climbing or, if you’re low on stamina, walking up the hills.

How to Unlock Popla Foothills Skyview Tower

When you reach Popla Skyview Tower, you will discover that the terminal inside the tower is not working. Since Link doesn’t have any computer qualifications, you need to find someone who can fix it for you.

First, you need to jump into the pit near the Popla Foothills Skyview Tower and blow up or destroy the rocks you find down here.

This will reveal Elmerson, the person who must repair the Skyview Tower, trapped in a cell. He will explain to you that he got trapped trying to find the treasure inside the well and will fix the tower if you free him.

To do this, you must climb out of the pit (thanks Ascend) and head to the cliff on the other side of the tower. At the edge of this cliff, you will see a collection of ruined buildings.

With the paraglider, glide up to these buildings and you will find the entrance to the cave of the Popla Foothills excavation site.

Enter this cave and you will find yourself on the other side of the jail where Elmerson was trapped. Now all you have to do is stand on the button in the middle of the floor to release it. He will give you 50 rupees for your troubles.

Before ascending out of the cave, we recommend using Ultrahand to move the chest towards the button. This means that you can freely travel around the cave whenever you need to.
