What to Do at Sunken Valley Cavern in Sekiro
Developed by FromSoftware, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is a third-person action game that’s also full of cryptic little things and secrets for you to figure out. Here’s what to do at the Sunken Valley Cavern in Sekiro.
How to Get to the Sunken Valley Cavern in Sekiro
First off, the Cavern is an optional area that you can get to by solving the strange kite puzzle located at Senpou Temple.
You can check out our guide for the full steps to solving this puzzle, but essentially, you need to first defeat the Folding Screen Monkeys for the Puppeteer Ninjutsu move before progressing.
Once you’ve solved the kite puzzle, keep moving through the Senpou Temple area and grapple onto the kite to get to the Sunken Valley Cavern.
What to Do There
Now here’s the tricky part. Once you arrive at the Cavern, you’ll find a thin wooden beam you can step on, with a long drop beneath you.
Whether you can progress here depends on what you’ve done so far in Sekiro. If you’ve yet to reach the Gun Fort and encounter the Giant Serpent for the second time, there’s nothing you can do in the Sunken Valley Cavern. So keep playing through the game until you meet the snake again at the Gun Fort.
After you’ve triggered the second snake encounter, warp back to the Cavern Sculptor’s Idol and walk to the beam once again. You should now see the Giant Serpent sitting beneath you. All you have to do is lock onto it, jump off, and kill it with a plunging attack.
This will reward you with the Fresh Serpent Viscera, which is one of the key items required for the true ending in Sekiro.
That’s all you need to know about what to do at Sunken Valley Cavern in Sekiro. Be sure to check our Sekiro guide wiki for more tips and information on the game.
