The town of Gerudo is certainly a scary one. It’s located in the desert and you’ll have to fight your way through the monsters, puzzles and bosses, all the while dealing with extreme temperatures. You’ll need to stock up on both heat-resistant gear and cold-resistant food and items if you want to get there easily.
