The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom indeed have a Fast Travel system that makes Link’s journey throughout the Kingdom accessible. Aside from utilizing his paraglider, this system can only be unlocked after completing the four Sky Island Shrines and unlocking the Temple of Time.

Skyview Towers and Shrines are vital in helping Link navigate around Hyrule; it helps update the World Map on his Purrah Pad. This guide details everything about Skyview Towers, how to unlock and their locations in Tears of the Kingdom.

How to Find the Skyview Towers in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom?

Throughout your journey across Hyrule, Link will discover tall beacons towering over various regions that serve as fast travel points. These beacons are called Skyview Towers, and these structures can be unlocked once you’ve located Lookout Landing.

While at Lookout Landing, you can complete the first section of the Crisis at Hyrule Castle by heading out to Hyrule Castle to locate Captain Hoz before speaking with Purrah. Here, you will meet with Purrah at the Skyview Tower, for which you’ll get a Paraglider before activating the tower, which signals the other towers.

With your Purrah Pad updated you’re now tasked with locating the other Skyview Towers, which requires time and patience. Once you’ve discovered a tower, you must overcome some obstacles, whether accessing the tower, eliminating enemies, or destroying objects blocking the path.

You must find a console pad inside the tower to activate it with the Purrah Pad before stepping on the platform to launch Link into the skies. Here, he’ll scan the surrounding area and the Sky Islands for it to be recorded on the Purrah Pad, and the data will be sent to Purrah’s Lab to aid in her research.

One of the ideal ways to identify a Skyview Tower, once the one activated at Lookout Landing, is that a lightly dimmed beam will brighten the skies. This makes activating them at night ideal as you can sneak past enemies, mostly undetected, and take cover in the darkness to reach the panel.

Finally, you can activate the towers without engaging in combat by running past enemies or using one of the abilities to help you reach the panel. From there, activate the panel and then the tower to start scanning the area and update the Hyrule map on your Purrah Pad.
