Lanayru Caves is a short cavern that acts as a (literal) crossroad connecting the various sections of the Lanayru Province.

To the Sand Sea

During his quest for the sacred flames, Link must pass through the Lanayru Caves to reach the sand sea. There, he’ll encounter Golo the Goron, who’s digging towards the south. After inquiring about the area, Link can receive the key to the western exit from Golo.

To the Gorge

Later on, Link will return to the Lanayru Caves in his search for the Thunder Dragon. While Link was away, Golo almost finished digging a tunnel to the south; all he needs is one more small push to break through.
