Rito Village is one of the several major villages that you need to track down while playing The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. The village is the primary location where you’re going to find Rito and where you’re going to recruit a helpful companion, Tulin, during your adventure.
You can only find this location in a specific area, and the bridge connecting it to the mainland will be broken. There’s a simple trick to reach it, though, making your life much easier. This guide covers how to get to Rito Village in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, but there are so many creative ways to get across the bridge, we encourage you to use your imagination to launch yourself into the sky and fly across.
How To Find Rito Village in Tears of the Kingdom
You can find Rito Village on the northwest part of the map, to the south oyou’reHebra Mountains. If you’re starting at Central Hyrule in Tears of the Kingdom, make your way to the northwest, continue, and follow the road from Hyrule Ridge to Tabantha Frontier. You can also go north of the Hyrule Ridge, into the Tabantha Tundra, and then make your way to the west.
We do recommend making sure you have some form of Cold Resistance clothing or plenty of food in your inventory to protect you in this region. This is one of the tougher areas to survive as it will consistently be cold and difficult to navigate.
How to Cross Broken Bridge to Rito Village in Tears of the Kingdom
One of the first locations outside Rito Village is the Lucky Clover Gazette, a notable landmark in Tears of the Kingdom. When you reach this location, speak with the person outside the Gazette sitting next to the fire. They will discuss how the road has been broken due to the blizzard, and no one has been able to get across. However, they also address how when they throw a pinecone into the fire, it creates a massive updraft, and the papers around them go flying.
This will be how were able to enter Rito Village in Tears of the Kingdom. We discovered a nearby pinecone on ground and threw it into the fire. After we did this, a large gust of air shot up from the fire it took our Paraglider for a ride, allowing us to sail across the sky to reach the other side. You’ll be able to take it across the bridge gap and make it to Rito Village.
Although this is how we did it, we encourage everyone to find their own method. Some players were able to create a massive bridge using multiple logs to reach the other side, while others use the Flame Emitter Zonai and the Balloon Zonai to glide across in a makeshift hot air balloon. There’s no wrong answer to these solutions, giving you plenty of wiggle room to find a way to reach Rito Village.
When you reach Rito Village, there is a Shrine at this location called Gatakis Shrine. We recommend activating it to create a fast travel point to make it faster to reach Rito Village whenever you need to return here.
