Along with being remarkable as well as enormous, The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild is a game that wants its players to play at their own leisure in such a manner that they figure out everything by themselves. This game has 76 side quests that span a massive open world and one quest amongst it is the Secret of Snowy Peaks.
This article deals with everything that a player should know before starting with the Secret of Snowy Peaks quest.
Obtained from reading the Mountian Peak Log atop the Mount Granajh in the Gerudo Highlands, the Secret of Snowy Peaks is a shrine quest of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Found between Faron Grasslands as well as Gerudo Desert southwest of Wasteland Tower and east of South Lomei Labyrinth this quests grants link to access to the Suma Sahma Shrine. It calls for a link to cast a “cold shadow” on a pedestal which is situated between Mount Granajh as well as Daval Peak. It can be accomplished by holding various snowballs in the area above the head in such a manner that the shadow falls across the centre pedestal.
Suma Sahma Shrine is in the southwest Wasteland region on the range of mountains that divide it. The neighbouring Lake region puts this more towards the centre of the map. It is specifically located on Daval Peak that is directly east of the maze. On reaching there the player notices a glowing Shrine pedestal on a cliff that is close to a ruined wooden hut.
In order to reveal the Suma Sahma Entrance, the player is firstly supposed to find the cabin on the ridge located between the two mountain peaks. He is then required to kill the enemies who are lurking in the area that includes Ice Lizalfos who do not damage the player or the surrounding snowballs. After this, they have to grab the mid-sized snowball from the lot that is available on the ground around the cabin. The players have to head south so that they face out towards a wall from the cliff that is a few steps south from the cabin. In order to make the sun rise in the sky, they have to hold the snowball over their head while they are standing near the edge of the cliff. After this, they are required to enter the shrine to open the treasure chest for a Moonlight Scimitar Long Throw to meet Suma Shama.
Depending upon the position of the player, the shrine is revealed most easily between 4 and 6 p.m. The sun does not cast a shadow at the right angle during other parts of the day. If the players clear out the enemies and have a long time to wait, they can then use wood as well as flint to build a fire and advance the clock to noon so that they do not have to wait for long.
Reading the Mountain Peak Log helps the player to open the way to the Shrine. It reads as follows: “ “When the snowy mountain pedestal glows, cast a cold shadow onto its core”. If we decode this in simple language it means that someone’s findings on a hidden Shrine nearby. For this the player needs to create a snowball, pick it up and use the shadow that it casts when the sun sets on the pedestal. To achieve this, the player is firstly supposed to locate a small snowball near the ledge, run up the hill and then throw it down. As the size of the snowball increases, it automatically gains speed. After this, the player has to light the stack of wood inside the hut either with the help of a fire arrow or striking a piece of dropped flint from your inventory with a metal weapon.
After resting until noon, the player has to stand with the snowball above their head in front of the pedestal until the sun sets. They then have to cast a shadow at the right position so that the Shrine entrance emerges closeby. As the shrine emerges the player can simply enter to grab the treasure for claiming the Spirit Orb.
Thus, to sum up, we can say that Suma Sahma is one of the many shrines located throughout Zelda: Breath of The Wild that is connected to the Secret of Snowy Peaks Shrine Quest and involves the player to get inventive with snowballs as well as shadows.
