In Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, The Depths offer a whole bunch of mysteries to explore that greatly extend the Zelda universe. There are even some quests that you can complete in the Depths. One questline is called "Master Kohga of the Yiga Clan" – to complete it, you have to follow and defeat Master Kohga in four different abandoned mines in the dark and creepy underworld.

To reach those mines, you can usually just jump into a Chasm nearby and then follow the big stone statues. But when doing so to get to the Abandoned Hebra Mine, you will eventually find yourself in front of a fallen statue that is buried in the wall, making it impossible to proceed.

The fallen statue can actually cause a lot of confusion. Neither can you get it out of the way with your Ultrahand or your Recall ability, nor by using bombs or anything similar. And don't interpret too much into the Zonai Wing that is lying around next to the statue – it means nothing.

Instead, the solution to this lies on the surface. You have to find a certain Chasm that will take you right into the heart of the Abandoned Hebra Mine.

Extra tip: When exploring the Depths, we recommend focusing on activating as many Lightroots as possible in the first place. Sure, you can also use Brightbloom Seeds to enlighten your surroundings, but considering the enormous size of the underground, enabling the Lightroots is just a lot more comfortable. Plus, it helps you to keep an overview on which areas you haven't yet visited at all.
