Hidden Grottos - Zelda: Twilight Princess


Hidden Grottos

These caves are hidden all around Hyrule. The only way in is to dig while in Wolf form. There is normally very little indication as to the location of most of them.

Most contain a large amount of rupees, while other contain heart pieces. Still others contain nothing at all.

Lets take a closer look at the locations and secrets of the hidden hide-a-ways.

Note: to get out of a grotto, climb on the rock with sun shining on it.

To the guest who's shield burned up- Mali Mart offers you another wooden shield for the price of 50 rupees. It is not originally the same pattern but it is similar. Great guide! There is also a large boulder blocking a long cave in Lake Hylia, and it is near the howling stone.

I have checked with my connections in nintendo (being a gameaholic i made some awesome friends) and i personally checked and me and and my friend (one of the beta testers) both agree this is one of the the most reliable lists out there for this game and is also greatly but not too greatly detailed!
