This question already has an answer here:

Hestu, as in the guy you give Korok seeds to. After I first met him and completed his quest, he's no longer in that same spot. Where can I find him?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


After Hestu leaves the location where you meet him, look for Hestu near the Riverside Stable north of Batrea Lake.

After you expand your inventory, Hestu tells you he needs to go home to his Grandpa in Korok Forest. If you talk to him again afterward, you can ask him how to get there:

Hestu discusses Korok Forest - The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Hestu discusses Korok Forest - The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Hestu discusses Korok Forest - The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

On the way, he stops near Riverside Stable along the Hylia river. After you upgrade your inventory a few more times, he continues his journey.

Eventually, Hestu will make it to Korok Forest. To get there, follow the Hylia River north.

    @TimmyJim Thanks for the info. Added the clarifying info to my post. – Shaun Mar 7 '17 at 20:46

According to this wiki, he can be found again at Wetland Stable due to getting lost on the way to Korok Forest.

Hestu will only allow Link to upgrade a few times before announcing that he needs to get back to Korok Forest. However, he gets lost on the way, and is next found at Wetland Stable, in the westernmost part of Lanayru. He allows Link to get several more upgrades before remembering the way back to Korok Forest and leaving again.

Additional information is found on the "wiki". I'm unsure if thats the official zelda wiki.

  • This is not necessarily true. I found him at his initial place and then next in Korok Forest. – Seiyria Mar 6 '17 at 23:54
  • @Seiyria I based my answer on the forum in the link. I don't play this game. – Reflexive Mar 7 '17 at 10:14
