If you are not in the large room at the start (above), pick up a Bomb Flower (to the left of the entrance) and blow it up on the wall opposite the entrance. In this level, I advise you to equip yourself with the Hylien shield when the other is not useful because the Deku shield can burn (lava, flaming tapper, ...) and you will then have to buy it back.
First go quickly to the left of the room, passing through the center so as not to get gunned down by the sentry. These are killed by an explosion (bomb or Bomb Flower). Possibly kill the sentry and blow up the wall not far (1) to get the map of the cave. The kale that you took can also go and kill the plague Deku in the corner when your shield has burned (she sells you 40 rubies). Then cross the room to get to the right side of it. There, kill the sentry and blow up the wall closest to the entrance (2). Cross the next room without necessarily killing the mini Dodongos (you can kill one near the stone wall, it will explode and you can go get a Skulltula). At the end of this room, pull a statue on the button to open the door (3) and take it.
After crossing the corridor, you arrive in a large room with a closed door at the other end. To open it, you will have to defeat the 2 Lizalfos (1) who jump from platforms to platforms. They fight with a sword or a slingshot. Do not hesitate to use the Z sight. Take the door once the grid is raised. In the next room, you will see an exploding wall behind which a plague sells you a Deku stick for 15 rubies. No need to go if you still have it. Otherwise, this stick is mandatory. There are 3 dodongos in this room. Throw them popping cabbages if you want to kill them. If they swallow them, they will die the first time. You can also use the slingshot. Take a stick and light it on the first torch to light the other 3 torches in the room (2). The gate rises and you can return to the central room through this door. It is a small raised corridor which leads you to the middle of the room, walk on the button at the end of this corridor (3) (it will open a gate opposite) then jump into the room (be careful not to fall without pressing, otherwise, you will have to do the trick again).
Now cross the central room and take the door that has opened. You arrive in a room full of small cabbages arranged in a square and a small cabbage alone. Take this isolated cabbage and throw it in the middle of the others, in space (1). The Bomb Flower will all explode and reveal a staircase. Before you borrow it, blow up the wall behind. In the room with the statues, take a Bomb Flower and throw it on the front statue which will wake up (you can also approach it). Then take a cabbage and explode the statue (2) then flee to a corner of the room because the statue bounces a bit anywhere before exploding. Find the compass in the trunk and exit the room. Go up the stairs and go around the room to take the door (first take the golden skulltula on the roots). In this room, kill the 2 fiery tappers and push the statue that blocks access to the ladder. Climb the ladder (3), step on the button and take the door that has unlocked.
You find yourself once again in the big room but upstairs this time. Cross the bridge, killing the tappers if necessary. You still have to cross the next room, paying attention to the spikes (even if it doesn't hurt very much). Take the ladder at the end and turn around to try to reach the platform at the chest (20 rubies). From there, try to throw the Bomb Flower on the small piece of soil in front of the wall (1) to detonate then cross the corridor. To pass the flame wall, you need seed, if you have no more, there are some at the bottom left of the room. To pass, just pull a seed in the eye in front of you (2). Then cross the room then the corridor to arrive in a large room with 2 Lizalfos. This room is filled with lava flowing on the floor below where you had already beaten these lizards. Kill them once (3) again then go through the door.
This piece looks like the one before the Lizalfos but don't worry, you haven't turned around. As in the previous part, you will have to aim the eye with your seed launcher (1). Then jump on the platform where the fire started and deactivate the other wall of fire by shooting in the hidden eye in the recess of the left wall. Then cross the room before the wall reactivates. You end up in the room with the spikes. Jump over the hole (don't miss it), open the big chest to find a bag of Bombs (2) then take the door. You find yourself in the central room. Walk on the button (3) to activate the ascent / descent of a platform which will make the elevator between the 2 levels of the room.
Now go along the wall on the right to go on the bridge and launch bombs in the holes of the bridge (1). For that, you have to launch at the top of the bridge climb. The bomb should fall into the eye of the giant skull of the Dodongo which will turn red if it worked. You can also jump on his head and put the bombs in his eyes. Do the same for the other eye and the mouth of Dodongo's skull will open and reveal a door (2). Go down and take this door. You arrive in a square room with a hole, go to the right and cross the corridor. Kill the tappers and then cross the room by climbing the blocks (if you blow up the wall of this room, there is a skulltula). You are back in the hole room. Push the large block in front of you so that it falls into the room. Then pull it to peel it from the wall and push it into the hole (3).
Here you are in the boss room. To face it, you have to put a bomb in the center of the room and jump in the hole but before jumping, go and take the bombs from the trunk. Here you are facing the boss: King Dodongo.
The Infernal Dinosaur (...) is a little scary to see but is quite easy to defeat. It has two attacks (spitting fire and rolling) which is avoided both by sticking to the wall or by skirting the lava. For the roll, the hylian shield is the best defense. If Dodongo is preparing to blow the fire, throw a bomb or a Bomb Flower in its mouth. It will collapse, meanwhile, take out your sword (B) and aim it (Z). Then press A to make him the attack that hurts. When Dodongo takes a hit, he regains his senses and curls up (unless he is dead). Your Hylien shield will protect you.
King Dodongo is defeated, you can take the heart he left and then come out by going in the circle of light. When you go out, Darunia arrives and congratulates you, the Gorons will finally be able to eat their fill. The chief explains to you that it is surely Ganondorf who blocked the door because he proposed to the Gorons to release the entrance in exchange for the stone. He offers to become a blood brother and gives you the Ancestral fire stone (ruby goron). The Gorons arrive to congratulate you and Link flees.
