To find Toto Lake in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom is a little tricky - it's actually very close to where you get the quest to find it, right to the North behind Ploymus Mountain, but it's only marked when you zoom into the map closely and easy to miss regardless.

Getting to Toto Lake, once you know its location, shouldn't be too hard, using either the glider to swoop down or making use of the Zelda Tears of the Kingdom Zora Armor to scale the dirty waterfalls nearby. We've marked Toto Lake's location in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom just below, and we'll walk you through the easiest way to reach it from the more accessible locations nearby!

In TOTK Toto Lake's location is marked on the map above. We've also circled two suggested starting points if you're wondering how to get there. Zelda Tears of the Kingdom is justifiably vast, so feel free to take whichever path you're equipped to take at your stage in the game.

The easiest way to get to Toto Lake is by jumping down and gliding across the back of Ploymus Mountain, landing every so often to defeat enemies or find a higher vantage point to jump from. For this, you'll just need your Zelda Tears of the Kingdom paraglider, since it makes getting around that much easier once unlocked. If you've followed our guide on which natural phenomenon to visit first in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom, you should also have the Sage of Wind's gust ability at your disposal. Now all you have to do is fast travel to the Ihen-a Shrine, mark Toto Lake's location on your Purah Pad using our map above, and fly there over the back of the mountain. Alternatively, you can always swim up the brown waterfalls just behind the Zora domain, which will get you there quicker, but is a little harder to navigate.
