The Serpent’s Head puzzle is located underground. There are three levels of gates in the puzzle, which you need to unlock. A single gate will guard the first two levels, and the final one will have five iron gates. 

1st Level:

Once you’re in the location, you’ll notice two Seelies on the tooth-like structures of the Serpent’s Head. To open the first gate, simply follow the Seelies until they stop, and the first gate should open. Collect the Electroculus by descending through the first gate. 

2nd Level:

Afterwards, you should see the second gate. To open it, you’ll need to go behind the sidewall, and you should see a lever. Since the second gate doesn’t have a complex mechanism, you can simply pull the lever to open it. 

3rd Level:

The third level of the puzzle is the most tricky part. First, you’ll need to defeat a Ruin Sentinel if you want to solve the rest of the puzzle without disturbances. So, the 3rd level of the puzzle has five iron doors and five levers to adjust them. 

These levers can either open or close a single door or multiple doors. 

To unlock all doors, you’ll have to follow the order shown below without overthinking about how the levers work:

Finally, at the bottom level, a Kairagi samurai will be guarding the tomb. You must defeat the samurai first and place a Dendrobium at the grave. Another Seelie will be waiting for you in one corner of the iron gate. 

You can open the gate by interacting with the nearby switch, similar to the 2nd level of the puzzle. Once the Seelie is free, it will guide you to the location of a treasure chest.
