After entering the shrine, walk down the stairs and you will see an object (Fan) lying on the ground, and an unclimbable wall ahead.

  • Use Ultrahand ability to attach the fan pointing upwards,  to the ground.
  • Turn on the fan by hitting it with a weapon.
  • Stand on the fan and double jump to open the paraglider, the gust created by the fan, will give you enough height to reach the   top of the wall.

Part II

Next, you will see a plank and another fan lying on the ground. On your left there will be water, the goal of this part of the puzzle is to get to the other side of the water.

  • You can do that by building a boat, use Ultrahand ability to place the plank in the water.
  • Then using Ultrahand ability attach the fan to the plank, so that it points towards you and that is it, you have created yourself a boat.
  • Climb the plank and hit the fan.

Part III

Again there is a high unclimbable wall ahead of you, but this time it cannot be glided to, as in part 1. You will see two fans lying on the ground and a platform that can move vertically, infront of you.

  • Attach the two fans below the platform, so that they point toward the ground.
  • Hop on the platform, activate the fans and you will find yourself on top in no time at all!

After you cross the water, you will see the unclimbable wall in front, but on the right side, you will notice a plank that has a treasure chest stuck to it, but it is not reachable.

  • Detach the fan from your boat and attach it to the bottom of the plank. But not on the side, where the treasure chest is attached. Point the fan toward you while attaching.
  • Activate the fan by hitting it. 
  • Climb the platform as you did in part 3, and glide from there toward the chest.
  • Open the chest, that’s it. The chest contains an opal.
