One of the biggest surprises to come out of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom was an entirely new area of the map. Not only can you can explore the skies above Hyrule, you can also dive down into The Depths below and traverse an equally enormous area.
Similar to the shrines located across Hyrule above, The Depths has a series of fast travel points you can activate throughout the darkness called Lightroots. Every Lightroot is directly below a shrine above, meaning you can find them based on the shrine locations or vice versa.
How Many Lightroots are There?
There are a total of 120 Lightroots located in The Depths, which directly correlates with all 120 shrines located on the surface of Hyrule. Not only are all of the Lightroots directly below the shrines, the names of each one are actually the same name of the shrine above, but backwards.

How to Find All Lightroot Locations in Tears of the Kingdom
Because the Lightroots are directly beneath the shrines across Hyrule, the easiest way to pinpoint their locations is to mark the shrine points on the map above and make your way toward them below. Alternatively, if there are any Lightroots you've found in The Depths that sit below an undiscovered shrine, you can do the same to find the shrine quest above. Take a look at our guide to all of the shrine locations in Tears of the Kingdom to find the ones you've missed.
