How to open Popla Foothills Skyview Tower in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom
Unlocking the Popla Foothills Skyview Tower is unique. There are no obstacles around the tower. The only issue here is the gates. They don't open as you press the A button like it does with other towers.
To open the gates and access Popla Foothills Tower, you must enter a secret cave hidden underneath the tower and find Elmerson, the NPC who controls the tower, and has got trapped. Players can find this cave following the coordinates 0604, -2191, 0052, or the walkthrough below.
- Head south from the tower until you see the sharp slope
- After that, use the Paraglider to get down without taking damage
- Keep going left until you reach the required coordinates and see the cave entrance
- Enter it, and stand on the stone button found at coordinates 0587, -2130, 0052
- Elmerson will be freed, and he will instantly approach Popla Foothills Skyview Tower to repair it.
We recommend wandering around the tunnel before leaving the cave and heading to Popla Foothills Tower. Here you can find the chest that can be opened for Topaz - one of the rarest ores that can be used to fuse weapons or sold for Rupees.
Once you open the chest with Topaz, feel free to leave the cave and use the Ascend ability to get up quickly. As you approach the tower, it will be already opened by Elmerson, which is a reward for revealing him, alongside 50 Rupees.
