Skyborn Altar is a dragon's lair located in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
- Treasure chest behind one of the pillars on the left (facing the word wall), containing random loot. There is a single burial urn adjacent to it.
A courier may give the Dragonborn a letter from a friend to seek out this location.
- When fighting the dragon at this altar, it is advisable not to bring the fight to the top of the clifftop, since the dragon's corpse can ragdoll all the way down the cliff, making its contents difficult to loot.
- If approached before the "Dragon Rising" quest is completed, this location will be host to a wisp mother and her wisps as well as a sacrificial table with a shrine of Akatosh on it.
