Shrine Location

If you follow the Old Man at the beginning, he will guide you to the Oman Au Shrine. From there, he will introduce you to other shrines, so it's best to start by exploring the ones nearby. Since Cold Resistance is necessary at some point, so don't forget to obtain the Warm Doublet.

You Can't Leave The Great Plateau Without The Paraglider
