How to Solve Ekochiu Shrine (Rise and Fall) in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom
Start by stepping on the square protruding from the floor in order to launch the moving platform across the gap and back. Now, step on the moving platform and use Recall to ride it across yourself and complete the first room. In the next room, you’ll see a square platform fall off of a waterfall. Run through the water and climb on top of it before using Recall again to solve this section.
Now comes the tricky part. Grab the square block to your right and use Ultrahand to move it so that it’s sitting on top of the platform that shoots up when you step on the square block in the ground on the upper platform. If you want to make this easier, place it so that the block hangs over a bit toward where you’re trying to go.
Next, step onto the square platform up top so that the block launches up. Do this a few times and then climb back down and run over to the block. Climb on top of the block now, and use Recall on it. It should launch itself up two or three times, getting increasingly higher up. Jump when the block is at its peak and use the glider to float down to where the end of the Shrine is waiting with your reward.
