Have you ever wondered how long it takes to walk to High Hrothgar while climbing the intimidatingly named Throat of the World mountain in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim? No, well neither have I, but we’ve got an answer for you today nonetheless.

Originally released in 2011 before being ported to just about every platform imaginable, very few doubt that Skyrim isn't the most popular entry in Bethesda’s The Elder Scrolls series. It’s why more than a decade after its initial release, we still can’t get enough of Skyrim. If you’re one of the few fed up with the Bethesda fantasy RPG, tell everyone to stop buying copies!

“As civil war engulfs Skyrim, the long-forgotten dragons return and bring terror to the land. Only a lone prisoner can defeat them by fulfilling his hidden destiny as Dragonborn,” reads the epic synopsis of The Elder Scrolls V.

As reported by Screen Rant, it is said that it takes roughly 7,000 steps to make it to the top of the Throat of the World to reach High Hrothfar, but apparently, that is not true and Bethesda has been lying to us all. The horror! It seems that the journey to reach the location of the monastery of the Greybeards (I’m not associated) is nowhere near as perilous as we were led to believe.

Information discovered by YouTuber natiscool with the aid of others, discovered that the journey from the bottom to the top is closer to 700 steps than it is 7,000. This could very well be the scandal of the century! The number of steps to walk this journey isn't an exact science, so it should still be taken with a pinch of salt. Either way, whether it’s 700 or 1,000, that’s still far less than what Bethesda had originally claimed.
