Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom Koltin Locations

You might remember Kilton, the bizarre monster-loving NPC from your adventures in Breath of the Wild. Well, in

. Unlike his sibling, Koltin has a fervent obsession with all things involving the Satori... so obsessed that Koltin's only mission in life is to become a Satori himself.


To transform into one of the otherworldly, blue-glowing Satori (such as

or the mysterious Lord of the Mountain), Koltin has a plan. He's on the hunt to consume as many Bubbul Gems

, he'll trade you some monstrous goodies.


But first, you'll need to find him. Unlike his brother, Koltin doesn't like to set up shop outside major towns. Here are all seven spots in Tears of the Kingdom where you can find Koltin's Shop to trade in your Bubbul Gems, plus how to unlock Koltin's Shop in the first place.


Koltin's Shop only appears at the following locations at night! Stop by a campfire or craft your own to fast forward time by sleeping until nighttime so you don't have to wait around for Koltin to appear.

How to Unlock Koltin's Shop​


Before Koltin and his monstruous shop will start to pop up all around Hyrule, you'll need to make some introductions. The first place you

You'll first spot Kilton, our monster-obssessed friend from Breath of the Wild, standing outside the Pico Pond Cave. Talk to Kilton to

If you don't have a Bubbul Gem to give Koltin already, you can find one right there inside the Pico Pond Cave! Explore the cave to discover the Bubbulfrog hidden within. When slain, a Bubbulfrog will erupt and vanish, leaving nothing but a Blupee and a Bubbul Gem behind.


Out of arrows to knock that Bubbulfrog off the cave ceiling? Try throwing an item such as a

After Koltin has gobbled down his first Bubbul Gem, he'll ask you to bring him any more that you find in your travels in exchange for a "gifty". This starts

Once you've found Koltin at the Woodland Stable and

You can travel to the

in Akkala (just north of Tarrey Town) and head east to speak with Koltin at his shop.


Remember, Koltin and his shop will only appear here at night! You can use the cooking pot in Tarrey Town to pass the time until night falls.


Just chat up Koltin to confirm your arrangement of trading Bubbul Gems for treasures, and after this, Koltin will begin to appear all around Hyrule.

Here are the other six spots in Tears of the Kingdom where you can find Koltin:

Eldin Mountains Koltin Location​


In the Eldin Mountains, Koltin has decided to set up shop in a little spot called the Isle of Rabac. It's a bit off the beaten path, but you'll find its not too far north from the new makeshift road constructed by the Gorons,

Hyrule Field Koltin Location​


Is that... a hot air balloon south of Lookout Landing? Nope, it's Koltin and his bizarre shop. You can find his spot in Hyrule Field just south of Lookout Landing, the fort set up near Hyrule Castle

Faron Koltin Location​


Perhaps one of Koltin's more remote spots, his shop can be found at night in Faron at the top of one of the Farosh Hills. The easiest way to make this trek is via the
